A bond so strong, it's hard to define,
A father and son, through space and time.
From the first moment they lay eyes on each other,
A love is formed, like no other.

It's a bond built on trust, respect, and love,
Guided by wisdom, passed down from above.
A father shows his son, what it means to be a man,
Teaching him life's lessons, with a steady hand.

Together they laugh, and sometimes they cry,
And through the years, their bond will never die.
