Forever and a day,
You keep them safe.
Always knowing in every way,
They will love you just the same.

My Thoughts

by Jeb Bensing - 2014

Suddenly you see, all the things that could be,
How your children can live so happy and free.
Excepting that belief, their life is better than you think.
Knowing that they couldn't do it without one simple thing –
Your STRENGTH, FAITH, and,
Your LOVE which comes from within.

I can still hear them when I close my eyes.
Every whimper when they shake that chin,
With every moan which comes deep down within,
A tummy that hurts like it’s caving in.
I would hear them all the time.

When putting them to bed for that goodnight sleep,
There is that methodical look of a wee smile.
They are enjoying this priceless time of mocking me.
These are moments when those thoughts creep in my mind and ask –
Why are they my child?

At the Ball Park

You don't change their world, they change yours. You play that part in making them complete, while opening the doors and, giving them an opportunity to achieve. Expanding their mind while, creating that bond for the heart between theirs and yours.

I never thought that another soul,
Could come from a part of my own.
Never did I even consider having one.
All the responsibilities that I would have,
Never thinking I could be a Dad.

Many thoughts dance in my mind.
What would they look like?
What color would their eyes be?
How will they sound?
How hard will they cry?
I am so grateful that they are mine!

At the Ball Park

You live your life through their ways, making their life better than your days, hoping they turn out better in every way.

A day will not be complete without,
Them saying I love you!
A day will not be done until I would,
Read them a good book before sleep.
As I turn off the lights,
I will hear those simple words,
As they gently float upon my ears.
Knowing that they too –
Will love me back for many years.

These simple words that will carry my soul.
Knowing that I will be there,
No matter where they go.
I will love them forever and a day,
Even after we are apart.
Keeping all of our love close to my heart.
