If I could be like.....

Son, the day you were born I imagined to myself
What it was like the day I was born.
How did my Father feel?
If I could be like Him, what would your life be like?

If I could be like my Father……..
When you cry I would always hear you.
When you fall I would always be there to pick you up.
When you need help I would always be there for you.

If I could be like my Father…..
When you are sick I would help you to heal.
When you are sad I would be there to listen.
When you are out of line I will discipline you as strongly as needed.

If I could be like my Father….
When you are 5, and learning to read,
I would patiently sit by your side until you learned your words.

If I could be like my Father…..
When you are 9, and playing sports
I would be at every game cheering you on.

If I could be like my Father….
When you are 12, and start to like girls
I would teach you how to approach her with respect.

If I could be like my Father….
When you are 16, and learning to drive
I would trust you as a young man to be responsible.

If I could be like my Father….
When you are a man
I would have taught you respect, honor, love
Trust, commitment, discipline and faith.

You would be the man that I tried to be.
You would be the man your Father made you to be.
You would be an honest man,
A God-fearing man
A man after God’s own heart.

No matter what other people do to you.

I pray that I teach you to be like….
Our Father.

If I could be like.....
