You Are Now Fatherless

The first that caught my attention

Were radiant eyes of unspeakable love

Whose hands give my over to another with a protective gaze

But when i heard the news of his death


CHORUS

My heart panted

As a boiling stream of tears

Flowed with pain in silent

later i heard, as it hit me

"You are now fatherless"


His set boundary was my protection

As the manner of fathers to reprove

In their strong words of limiting phrase

But when i heard the news of his death


He was my symbol of provision

Offering his earnings as true-love

Promoting in me a visible raise

But when i heard the news of his death


He set me up for promotion

Equiping me for a position above

As he trained me not to be lazy

But when i heard the news of his death


How can i forget his celebration

Which he deposits in us his belove

That comes from his joyful gaze

But when i heard the news of his death


Oh daddy ! you may be gone but I will never forget your love and legacy....

Thanks for the comment !

I really never understood the place of a father not until he left only then i was made to comprehen his value,love,provision,protect for his wife and we his kids.....

Fathers must be respected,valued and loved no matter te mistake/error they must have commited...

Kudos to all fathers out there !

May God give you all the strenght and empowerment(Physically,Sprituraully,mentally,finacially, and in every oter wise) too move yoour family to the next level in Jesus Name

May the peace of God be your companion in this place of loss. This is a beautiful and heart filled tribute to your father. Fathers are so very special. You are not really fatherless because God is a Father to the fatherless. Thanks for sharing.
