My son Daniel

Dear son,

You are the love of my life,

and the strength of my every breath,

Even though we did not grow in step,

In my heart, for you,

My love is kept,

With this burning flame,

That one day we'll meet again,

And your hatred for your absent father,

Will no longer be your pain,

But your compassion that i was an absent dad,

And not a father who was there to beat you,

With these hands of anger and a mind so full of rage,

Like my father before me,

Who started this stage,

But son every time I stare at your picture,

It calms my anger and rage,

With the thoughts of breaking the cycle,

Of the monster,

A monster once made (c)

Your son is one of the fortunate ones who has a dad who understands the cycle and the importance of breaking the links of the chain. You're amazing and one day when he sees you again, he will know the power that you have.

Minnetonka twin thanks. I think my style

Of writing comes from a combo of songwriting for so many years, being a watcher of the world depression stress and life itself. I know it's not for everyone but it is what I do

So tank you for reading
