To the daddy you used to be!
You are the daddy that used to be…
You pushed me on the swing
As I screamed weeeeee…
This is a poem on fathers day…
I’m gonna tell you this story
In my own way…
I love you, I love you…
I always have
There is nothing that can change that
I do hope you know…
Yes, you may have made me cry…
And ever so often I wonder why,
Why you pushed me out of your life…
Why you lie to your very own wife…
Don’t you know that I still love you?
Don’t you know that I still care?
There is no getting near you these days…
You’ve pushed me out in so many ways…
So I have decided to just let you be
There is no need in chasing
I’ve let myself free
Free from your grip, from your love and despair
Free from your third wife who doesn’t even care
Free from waiting for you to be a certain way
Free from making you want to stay
Free from wanting you to love me this way
It’s enough, I’m done, I’ve set myself free
God loves me for me
Some things never change,
I can count on him
I know that I can
There is no other man
Who can compare to Him
To the father you used to be…
I want to say thanks…
Thanks for the love, for the play, for the fun
We liked to ride bikes, to fly kites, and to sing
You let me dress up and flash some bling bling
You taught me to save for the things that I want
Not to be frivolous and buy everything at once
You took us on vacation, my sister and I
to Florida, New Hamshir, and even Hawaii
It would have never crossed your mind
Because you used to be so kind
to push us out the door
back when we played ‘’bucking bronco’’ on the floor
Do you remember him?
The man that used to love me…
The one that used to care…
The one who would stay up all night
The one who brushed my hair
Do you remember goldie locks
and stinky socks?
When did you change?
Why do you think that you are more godly now
Did God disown his children
when they didn’t do things his way?
Do you hear God anymore?
Do you hear him calling?
Saying your name?
Saying ‘’hi there my child, where are your children?
Did they both run away? Is that what you think?
Come to me and I will show you the truth’’
Will you go?
Can you see?
That we both love you so…
Will you go?
Can you bare it?
To see your own truth?
The children you pushed away in your youth?
You wanted it better
that is what you’ve always said
You didn’t want to be like your father
Who is now already dead
You wanted to be good and kind
And let us share what’s on our mind?
When did you stop having time?
When did you start hiding behind?
I do still love you…
I only hope you know
But I can’t be around someone
who wants to be my foe…
Is that what you want?
Because that is the way it seems…
You pretend I’m not on the phone whenever it rings
Well sometimes you do
That is, if let’s say,
your wife isn’t near
to take it away
She doesn’t grab at the phone
But she grabs at you soul, at your mind
Like a child who needs your attention
At every inconvenient time
You don’t say ‘’no I’m talking on the phone to someone important’’
you pretend I’m your boss giving tips on importment
You shove religion down my throat
When I don’t even care
You think you know better
But how can you
It isn’t fair
The truth is…
you don’t have all the answers…
Can’t seem to find them anywhere
And that is ok…
I just hope…
That some day
You will find what you are looking for
It will come knocking at your door
You will be ready to embrace it
To hold it in your arms
You will love it
Yes you will
Because by then…
You will have learned
to love yourself
Love yourself, father!
Love yourself for who you are
Love how God made you
Who he made you to be
Love the mistakes
Love it all
Because God made you
And he makes no mistakes
Because God loves you
He made you and you are exactly right
Don’t listen to a wife that puts you down
Or any one that makes you frown
Just be yourself, whoever that is
You’ll know it as soon as you begin
To Simply Love Yourself
You are who you are
You can’t change the past
Nor can you predict to future
But the NOW is what you have
SO embrace it
I’ve told you before
That I’ll open the door
But not to a hater full of anger and fear
I don’t need that in my life right now, dear
But I love you none the less
Don’t think about the mess
Just take that step and listen
Love yourself and listen
Ask for help and listen
Your worries have closed up your mind
Don’t submit to confusion and dissolution
Don’t submit to lies and compromise
Just Love yourself
Then you’ll know what to do
Just love yourself
Do you know how it’s done?
I’ve given up trying to change you
Or tell you how much I care
I know as long as she’s there
It will be ‘Schwer’ (hard/ difficult)
Well I guess that’s not true
No one gets the blame but you
But then again
I don’t want to blame
That would be such a shame
I just want to tell you
That I still love you
and encourage you to love yourself
As I have learned to love myself
