A Father's Apology

It has been so long since we last spoke.
What has your life been without me?
Did I ever pass through your thoughts?
I always wonder what your life has come to be.

As I look back on the years,
I regret the words and actions towards you.
I inflicted pain and never understood,
The real impact of what that might do.

I wish I could have been there for all your special moments.
Even helped you when you were lonely and sad.
I gave you the space you needed,
So you could have peace and not remain mad.

I'm older and wiser now.
I'm so proud of the person you've grown into.
I never doubted your ability,
And all the things you could do.

I'm sorry for making you feel bad.

I'm sorry I brought tears to your eyes.
I cannot apologise enough.
The fault was all mine.

I'm sorry for all the wrongdoing towards you.
I never wanted it to be so.
All I can do is my best,
And hope you'll give our connection another go.

I long for the day
When we will meet again
For now, I'll remain patient
And hope, the good feelings don't wane.

For I am your father,
And I'll always be here.
Though we stand so far apart,
To my heart, I'll always hold you dear.

A Message From The Gods

angelic hands

Don't be afraid,
Let me take your hand.
I'll guide you through the depths.
Hold you up, when you can't stand.

Embrace your fear,
For you are strong.
Have faith in me.
By you, I'll do no wrong.

I'm always here,
Buried in your heart.
Just seek me out,
For we are one part.

I'll always listen,
No matter what you may face.
Just open yourself,
And, let me fill that space.

For you are not alone.
I'm always standing by your side,
Through all the happy moments,
Even more so, when you cried.

I'm here to lift you up,
Taking you to greater heights.
The doors of opportunity will open,
When your timing is right.

Together we can conquer,
And, fill your world with love.
We'll make it through your journey,
With help from up above.
