A little poem that I came up with the other night. Let me know what you think.

A Father's Shadow
JM Kraemer

At the time of my birth,
I was held in his arms.
Resting in my father's shadow.

As I grow and as I learn
Lessons that he has passed to me.
I crawl in my father's shadow

As a teen I am one to test limits,
Yet the lessons still remain,
I walk in my father's shadow.

As an adult I still have much to learn,
Passing along the wisdom he has gained
I still am in my father's shadow.

As I grow older with wisdom of my own,
The thoughts and words that I use.
I am passing my father's shadow.

At this I now fully understand,
What all those lessons have prepared me for.
I have left my father's shadow.

As I age with the passing of time.
It dawns on me this simple reality,
I have become my father's shadow.
