To all the men we have adored

Our fathers, sons and blessed Lord

The uncles all who spared us space

And grandpapas that kissed each face

Who filled in for each missing dad

In every empty place we had.

This  family of kindly men

Who came to bat, again, again

And never once did let us down

Changing to laughter every frown

Whoever dreamt that we might find

Some other men to be this kind

Hard to accept as truth maybe

Love’s more than just paternity !
