You had one child biologically related to you.
The other two children were spiritual births.
You fought hard for the three of them
To attain their maturity and wisdom.
Your reward has been pure gold--
The joy of witnessing the convergence of their families
And welcoming the babies. With them
Your fathering moved to a new level.
Wisdom is an evolving process
That trickles down through generations.
Our children look to you for the judgement
Won by your years and sterling intuition.
We do not know the future
But our children know their foundation
Resides in a father as strong as a tree
With unshakable faith that the universe is good.
