I had spent many years just trying to take care of myself. It was a bit of a struggle at times but got through to my late 20's reasonably unscathed. Little did I know that my entire world would be turned around when our two lovely girls arrived on the scene.
I discovered in myself extremely strong paternal instincts and delighted in being a doting dad. I loved taking the girls to parks and having an excuse to be a big kid on the swings and slides. I was thrilled to take the girls on runs and watch them compete in races and triathlons. It was fun watching them grow and learn. Birthdays and holidays were special times.
Our trip to America was the most amazing experience with visiting National Parks, Disneyland, Las Vegas, Death Valley, Grand Canyon and San Francisco.
I regard myself particularly fortunate to have had the opportunity to share my life with our two incredible girls. I am thankful to have had such wonderful experiences of being a father.
As the girls reach an age of independence it is reassuring that the relationships we've had with our girls have helped develop them into confident and healthy young adults.
This special relationship is reflected in my song Will Be Right Here. Click here to listen
Will Be Right Here
Forget worries and cares...lay rest your fears
Daddy's close by...will be right here
Nothing will get you while safe in my arms
No danger awaits you will do you harm
Be soothed and settled peaceful calm
I'll cool your brow deep sleep allow
The troubles of the day let them go away
Cuddle up warm....restful stay
Snuggled up tight as a bug in a rug
As I comfort you gently wuth kisses and hugs
The sandman is coming he's waiting to call
As eyes become heavy into slumber fall
We'll see you tomorrow as a new day unfurls
My dearest most precious sweet little girl
