Speaking of Feelings
Some Fathers For David, Devin and Chase 2012
Some fathers never know they have a child.
Taken by circumstances…..
death, lust, ignorance, occupation….
some fathers leave their child
as they do their breath
not knowing it’s there
or its value
Some fathers go back for their child
or their child finds them
along life’s journey
strangers touching tentatively
feeling their way to the familiar
Some fathers live to have a child….
to dedicate their hearts
living their futures together
into this life
with all it brings
no matter what
willing to die into the moment
to feed life to their child.
Some children know only their father’s absence.
Some struggle thru their lives to find him.
All desire to learn their father’s heart
enough to trust the heart
beating through both of them
