  13. Open Arms

    • By Nicole R. Melson
    • Published by Family Friend Poems June 2019 with permission of the Author.

    Just a bit about my dad and me. I have two sisters, and my parents are divorced. I see my father as often as I can, but I never see my mother; she now lives in another state, but she used to live only hours away and could have visited me. But she only visited my sisters who were in a completely different state. Anyway, I do have a step-mother who is awesome. My dad is my rock, and since it is Father's Day soon, I wrote this poem.

    in Family Poems for Kids

    You're the one with open arms
    When the darkness closes in.
    When the shadows come and the nightmares make it hard to sleep,
    You're always there to chase them all away.
