A Waiting Father

Published: February 2011

I used to watch you run and play,
those were our best times together.

I always tucked you in at night,
and comforted you during stormy weather.

I used to hold your hand so tight,
before we crossed the street.

And cheered you on with so much pride,
when you said Daddy look at me!

Now Daddy's heart hurts so bad,
not having you around.

Your Daddy misses everything about you,
especially trips to the playground.

But Daddy knows that someday,
we will be together once more.

Because there's nothing stronger than a father's love,
missing his baby girl.

I love this poem. Thank you for writing it. I am a father of 4 beautiful children. They are living with their mother about 3 hours away. I haven't seen them since May of 2015. I used to talk with them everyday on the phone but now I'm lucky if she lets me call them once a month. I live in a constant state of complete heartbreak. I cry over them quite often and every time I look at their pictures it tears me apart. I would give anything and everything to see them one more time.
