Father… by Toni L.A. Cross


I molded you and fashioned you

I guided you with care

My hand was always holding you

When no one else was there

I saw the depths of your dreams

I wept at your heart laid bare

You shove me back with pudgy fists

Say that I’m not fair

Don’t you see I love you so?

I’ll take the pain you bear

Give up to me and let me free

You from yourself

    Strange the poem seems to have a sad tone flowing through it…still a fine poem my friend.
