A Father’s Love
A little girl torn from her daddy,
A daddy blocked at every turn,
An unconditional love that burned bright.
I love you daddy, she whispered into the night air.
I love you too, my angel, he whispers back.
Neither can hear the other but both smile.
Their love transcends the distance.
A woman now, she feels her daddy’s love,
Wrapping around her, protecting her.
She cannot see his ghostly face,
But knows he is with her always.
Nothing can separate them now.
The truth has set them both free.
Free to love each other as was destined.
Free to be her daddy’s angel,
Free to be her daddy, now and forever.

I wrote this poem back in 2008 and in it I delve into the relationship I share with my father.
A father’s love is strong and true. He guides his children to live a purposeful life, full of hard work and integrity. He’s the example of what it means to be a man.
This weekend, please take a moment and give your father/dad a call, text, email, etc. Three words is all it takes: I love you. Don’t delay because you never know when you’ll wake up and he’ll be gone forever. Don’t live with the regret that I live with.
