Father Poem

A father almost loses everything valuable in his life.

Losing Someone Special

© Jayme K. Strain
Deserted--
A lost dog
Wandering the streets
With no direction,
All alone.

Confused--
Not knowing why
You would run away from your little girl,
Leaving me with no father,
No guidance.

Searching--
For you, my father,
Who should be here
Teaching me to ride a bike,
And tucking me in at night.

Frustrated--
You harmed your body
With hurtful drugs,
Triggering you to commit dangerous actions,
Only causing more pain.

Distressed--
Knowing you won't ever come back
To see your girl,
All grown up,
Losing all hope.

Exultant--
Learning that you did some right,
Changing your life around,
Just in time for God to say,
'It is your time.'

Reconciliation--
Finally realizing where you are,
Looking down from heaven,
As my guardian angel,
Now, showing me the way.
