A Letter to the Future Mother of My Child

Dear Future mother of my child,


Wherever you are I hope you read this before we walk down that road /

I understand there will be no turning back once the baby is on board //

But I have a bit of an issue /

I know you’ll get emotional then

So I bring it up now hoping you don’t need a tissue //


See! I have been dreaming of being a dad since I was a little boy /

I am not ashamed to say that amidst all my muscle cars and trucks

I always kept a teddy bear and it was my favorite toy //

I know what you are thinking and the answer is yes, I am straight /

My teddy bear was my son and I took great care of it

A very admirable daddy trait //


My big sister made clothes for him /

My little sister put him to “sleep” and when I left home for school

I’d leave him in the couch and put cartoons for him //

I loved the experience, always looked forward to asking about his day /

Even though he couldn’t speak, my relationship with my son was fine that way //


What started as a game! /

Became a reality for me and he even had a name //


I remember a time a rat bit off part of his ear /

I was extremely sad I nearly shed a tear //

My sisters and I rushed him to the hospital (dining table)

And he was immediately taken into surgery /

My big sister equipped with a needle and thread saved my son’s life.

From a tailor to a surgeon, she was a master of her forgery //


I eventually outgrew him and I had to put him away /

Now the reality of a real son gets clearer by the day

And I am looking forward to it in every single way //


Wait! I had a point I was driving at? Mm… Oh yeah


So the other day on Facebook I saw an argument over who names the baby /

Did I think it was a silly argument? Maybe! //

However, when the time comes, I’d like to name the child /

You’d be a monster to refuse after my little story about my first child //


Your loving Future Husband

  1. Wow, spoken word verse.. The flow was great and the words were even more precious. I can see Ingrid has been paving a pretty good way for one lucky lady.. I’m glad you took the time to see the past and wish your future the same beautiful way.. all the best.. 🙂


  2. I love that you still have that emotional vulnerable part about you that made you my favorite. And you’re not afraid to show it. I think this letter speaks for many men seeing that many mothers usually just naturally take over the whole naming right. Good read!
