Father's Day, 2006

Dear Dad:

Ten years ago this month,
You slipped from life on Earth,
Your time here had been hard,
You struggled with your worth.

We knew you always loved us,
Although you didn't say,
Your soul now rests in heaven,
At least that's what we pray.

I want to say I'm sorry,
For wanting more than you could give,
I want to say I'm sorry,
You just didn't know how to live.

It's a shame you aren't here now,
To marvel at my kids,
They would have given you some value,
For more than just what you "did".

We'll bow our heads in prayer today,
And ask that you feel loved,
We'll ask that what escaped you here,
Is what you've found above.
