This one's on fatherhood

Another masterpiece picked up from the internet. Author Unknown

A Little Fellow Follows Me

A careful man I ought to be
A little fellow follows me
I dare not go astray
For fear he'll go the self-same way

I cannot once escape his eyes
Whatever he sees me do, he tries
Like me, he says, he's going to be
The little chap who follows me

He thinks that I am good and fine
Believes in every word of mine
The base in me he must not see
That little fellow who follows me

I must remember as I go
Thru summers' sun and winters' snow
I am building for the years to be
In the little chap who follows me

Know this poem only too well. Had dedicated this to my husband on Father's Day.
