A Letter To My Dad

 
Dear Dad of mine, you have been gone
For over fifty years...
Please forgive me if this letter comes
Splattered with many tears.
 
There are things I failed to tell you...
Things I need to tell you now.
O, I pray this letter reaches you
        Someway, someplace, somehow.
 
I don't know much about how things
Work on the other side...
But, the God who knows my heart,
Is the One who will decide.
.
Each Father's Day reminds me of
The things I failed to do...
And all the words I failed to say
                                To prove my love for you.                              
 
  I realize your generation
Was not the huggy- kissy kind...
And your kids were never cuddled
The way I tend to cuddle mine.
 
Yet I knew you really loved us
Though the words were never there.
I think this may be the reason
 Words were hard for me to share.
  
To you love meant provision...
Meant protection...discipline.
I was much too young to understand
Your show of love back then.
 
Yet words seem so significant
On days Like Father's Day.
If they've never danced upon my tongue
I'm persuaded now to say
 
They've always been within my heart
And the Lord knows this is true.
But, Daddy, I must say them now...
 Sweet Daddy, I love you.

Exodus 20:12
"Honor your father and your mother,
 so that you may live long in the land
the LORD your God is giving you.”

Proverbs 20:17
The just man walks in his integrity:
his children are blessed after him.
 
1 Chronicles 29:17
“I know, my God, that you test the heart
 and are pleased with integrity.”
 
Psalm 103:13
As a father has compassion on his children,
 so the LORD has compassion on those who fear
Him.
