 The world is becoming a very small place through the power of Twitter, Facebook and social media and I’m delighted to include a wonderful poem by my new friend Rodrick Walters.  I spoke to Rodrick  this week on the phone about his passion for Upbeat Dads after connecting with his great blog through Twitter and put him in touch with Sarah Gorrell from BBC Radio Surrey and Sussex. You can listen to his interview here => He is  on approx 38 mins into the show.

A Parent is Forever

By Rodrick Walters
When people get together,
With loving in their hearts,
They vow to love each other,
“Till death do us part;”
Sometimes for different reasons,
They don’t fulfill their vow,
Their minds change like the seasons,
There’s no love left to show;
But a parent is forever,
A spouse may come and go,
This bond is broken never,
It’s one law nature knows;
So precious are the children,
The lights that light our homes,
To know them is to love them,
The love that angels know;
When marriages are over,
There’s no more home sweet home,
Parents go on forever,
Kids need not feel alone;
Parenthood lasts a lifetime,
This truth you cannot doubt,
It’s an unbreakable love-line,
Once in you’re never out;
So a parent is forever,
This tie you can’t exchange,
A bond you cannot sever,
One law no man can change.
