Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 Father Just Then
Seems as if our yesterdays
Melted like snow and parted ways
Between us daughter, my dear child
Where arms once strong held you awhile

Long distance, longer yet still
Is what seems like a bitter pill
Swallowed each day, pondered in mind
Is how we feel so left behind

Phone calls once upon our time
Are far and few between this line
Seems disconnected, my heart asks why
Is this the way we live goodbye?

I'm sure your heart aches just like mine
Of things both past, present this crime
Is not our fault but they won't fade
Into the past on this I've prayed

You'll soon marry and wonder if
I'll be there to walk and kiss
The little girl that once called me
Dad back then, once family

Hurt has found and made it's home
Inside my heart each day it moans
Of what was once wishing it were
Just a bad dream in me that stirs

Maybe I fail to make the grade
Or shame is what you feel today
Of one who doesn't rate the role
To be again, Hero now old

My loss is some others gain
I'd never thought we'd feel this pain
Of what burdens shoulders that give
Way to what we use to live
