father’s faith….

21 Jan

In these trying times,
when any chances fade,
exhilaration has died,
and there doesn’t seem a way,

I turn to you with fear,
say everything will be okay,
though it was more of a question,
you sighed a sentence of faith…

“As long as she lives,
there is hope left still…”
I told you things will get better,
& I truly believe someday they will…

Because that look your eyes,
behind the weary dark bags,
behind the taunting tear that
looks over your left eye’s eyelash…

There lies a heart of solid gold,
that can never break nor fade,
it may bend, it may be beaten,
& it may dearly have to pay…

but it shall never give up,
it shall always believe.
The greatest father on earth…
you make me believe…

as long as she lives, there is hope…
because of you, Dad, i know this is so…

Life throws out his hand & cackles a grin,

you pay for her with your golden heart, so she might live…

    That is so sweet! 🙂 I understand.
    My 17 year old daughter has been giving me fits,
    and just last year she was a straight A student.
    I thought she understood how well she was doing,
    but now that she knows she can, the thrill is gone?
    Or what? Idk…wish I did. Is – letting her go and
    allowing her to make mistakes – is that right?

      Every daughter & father has a unique relationship. I believe that a father/mother can be the strongest source of strength in a child’s life… even as an adult. That unwavering faith. Even when the kid doesn’t believe in themselves in more. years later, they see the parents still believing in them, that’s when they step up & rise above it. Always believe in your daughter. Everyone goes through a lazy phase. motivate her, but know that it is just a phase in the end. Everyone likes to find their own way. Go ahead & help her. P.s. you sound like a very caring & wonderful father as well. Your daughter sounds just as lucky as i am.
