Poem-My Father

My Father

You are my father the only one

who has ever helped me to get things done

and though things are not the same today

I miss you more then i could say.

I love you more everyday

I don't know why i didn't stay.

I want so much to visit you

but i'm not sure just what you'd do.

I never meant to dessert you

and by no means ever hurt you.

I wish that you could see

all you've ever done for me.

I have a diploma, i finished school

you didn't teach me to be a fool.

Everything you've done i apprieciate

let's get together , it's not to late.

I may not be better than the rest

but, whatever i do, i do my best

I miss all the things we use to do

but i'm afraid to come see you

I just can't see hurting you again

but things are different now

than they were back then

Now that were getting older

why can't we comprimise

before life gets much colder

let's give it one more try.

Beautiful poem. It does hurt when you lose touch with close family members.

Well written. Thanks for sharing
