My Godfather's Poems He Wrote

1. This Father's Love

This (God)Father's Love
Written by my godfather, Calvin Clark

As I lay your precious head down for the night
I wonder what mystical far away land you're in,
just beyond my sight...
As I stand there watching you sleep,
I ask the Lord your soul to keep
I ask for the strength and guidance from above,
So one day you'll grow up
To know what it's like to share this Father's love...

I never believed in love at first sight,
But when I held you for the first time it just
seemed right
When I hear your soft infant cries, part of me breaks
down as I realize
That I'm filled with unconditional love, overpowered
by joy, knowing that I'm the father of this
beautiful baby girl...

I will show you a world of wonderful sights,
As this father's love takes you to all new heights
Pilot to co-pilot, the same as when I was a kid,
I can't wait to tell you about all the things that I
I pray that this time will last, but it's happening
way too fast...
Before long you'll begin to walk, next thing I know
you'll start to talk...

All too soon you'll become a young lady, no longer
needing to hold your father's hand
And I'll be proud of all that you do
Because there is no greater love than the love
I have for you...

Your (God)Father,

For My Daughter

For My Daughter
written by Calvin Clark, my godfather

I promised the day you were born,
I would always be there.

No matter what you did,
I'll still care.

You can count on me for anything;
I mean that from my heart.

Even if you move away,
and we were miles apart.

You'll always have me by your side,
until the day I die.

But even then, I'll come back for you.
So there will be no need to cry.

I love to know you need me,
and I hope you always do.

Even though I am your Father,
we can still be best friends, too.

So I want you to know,
dear daughter of mine,

I love you now, and until the end of time.

Miss you much,
Love Calvin

Who Is She?

Who Is She
A poem by Calvin Clark,
my godfather

She's a soft cool rain on a hot summer's day.
She makes me laugh with the funny things she has to say.

She's the beat of my heart, and the air that I breathe.
She's the sun and the wind, and autumn's golden leaves.

She's the pride that I feel when I know she's done what's right.
She's that warm feeling I get when I remember tucking her in at night.

She is my homework and sports, and a busy social life.
She has this beautiful smile that could light up the darkest night.

She is the scared feeling I have when she stays out late.
Or the feeling that I am loosing her, when she wants to date.

She's the mixed emotions I have as I watch her mature and grow.
I tell myself she will never leave, but I know in my heart that someday she will go.

I hope the man that steals her heart will treat her like a queen.
Because she deserves so much more, than a man that treats her mean.

I will always cherish the wonderful times we have had.
The best part of my life, was being her Dad.

So now you know who she is, she's my little girl.
I love her with all my heart, and I always will.

Little One

Little One
A Poem by my #1 wannabe Dad
and Godfather,
Calvin Clark

Only once will you take your first breath
Only once will you take your first step ~

I'll comfort you when you have your first fall
And I'll teach you how to stand straight and tall ~

I'll hold your hand through childhood fears
and guide you true, through teenage tears ~

(note to self and readers: i have only had one good cry at his house,
so he's only comforted me once...)

When your (you're) grown, you'll have courage and conviction
You'll go through life with and heart and intention ~

Remember, little one, the best things in life are free
So love always, laugh often, that is the key ~

Written by Calvin Clark
God father and #1 wannabe Dad
(my real dad, Marty, left me after my 7th or 8th birthday,
some dad HE was...)

A Love Gift To You

A Love Gift To You
a poem by my godfather, Calvin Clark

Although you're not my daughter,

I'd like to think you are,

You are so beautiful inside and out,

You shine just like the stars;

Your smile is so very radiant,

Your heart so gentle and true,

All the things I'd like to be,

That's what I see in you;

The road of life has made you wise,

There are memories that are hard to erase,

But you are honest and tell no lies,

A quality that cannot be replaced;

Your brilliance has become a part of my thoughts,

Your strength a part of my dreams,

So please remember I love You,

And for you I would do anything!

(From Father to Daughter ~ Love Always)

Love Speaks Through Us
Love Speaks Through Us
A Poem by my godfather, Calvin Clark

If the heart can speak,
what would it say,
We try and tell of the feelings
that are deep within us from day to day.

Love is a vast emotion
It can fill you up inside
It can rip you apart and leave you questioning why?

But Love was given to us as a gift
so precious and divine,
So that we can share it with others
So that the light may through us shine.

Some of us look from day to day
desperately to just feel it,
Some of us sort through our thoughts
just trying to figure out how to reveal it.

One does not know the key to it's mystery that runs deep
It is truly just to share,
An emotion to show someone else
how deep down we really care...

To My Darling Daughter,
Bryanna (me)
