Is it about fathers, or the Heavenly Father? It's both. It's also about my little guy. If you cry easily, get a hanky.
Couldn’t Love You More
By John Cosper
Dedicated to Sam Cosper
THEMES: Fathers; God’s Love
Sam- A little boy
Dad- Sam’s father
Dad is sitting in a chair, reading. Sam enters.
SAM: Daddy, do you love me?
DAD: Yes, I love you.
SAM: Daddy, would you love me more if I was taller?
DAD: (thinks a moment) No.
SAM: What if I was so tall, I got to be a basketball player? Would you love me more?
SAM: What if I played football? Huh? What if I was a big football star and I went to college and I went to the NFL and I made a lot of money? Would you love me more?
DAD: Not at all.
SAM: Hmm. (thinks) Oh, I know! What if I was a movie star? What if I was in a big summer movie and I played Batman and I saved the world? Would you love me more if I was a movie star?
DAD: No way.
DAD: No chance.
SAM: I know! What if i was a scientist? What if I invented a way to clone a... a dinosaur! You like dinosaurs, right?
SAM: What if I cloned a T-Rex?
DAD: I always liked Triceratops.
SAM: What if I cloned Triceratops and I made him nice and he was your little friend? Would you love me more?
SAM: Awwww! (thinks) How about if I was an astronaut? What if I got blasted off on a rocket ship and flew all the way to Mars! Wouldn't that be cool?
DAD: Very cool!
SAM: Would it make you love me more?
SAM: Not even if I found some new alien friends?
DAD: Not even then!
SAM: Aww, man. Isn't there anything that would make you love me more? Anything at all?
DAD: Not a thing.
SAM: Why not?
Dad hugs Sam.
DAD: You're my son. I love you just the way you are. And nothing in this world could make me love you more than I already do!
