MY LOVE





I never knew what love was
Until you opened your eyes,
I'm so uncertain that I'd ever experienced pain,
Until I heard your sorrowful cries,

I never had a friend so sincere,
When women cannot compare,
To the moments that we spend,
No one else exists, No one else is there,

Your smile puts me in a trance,
I could leave everything else behind,
I would give to you my life,
Ask for my soul, and I'd say "that's fine"

You are my reason for living,
The reason that I never give up,
When the raging waters try to shake us,
Daddy then stands tough,

Your entrance into the world,
Led me to think even deeper,
I just stared at you in amazement,
Like the discovery of a new creature

You will outlive all of my dreams,
You will embrace, and surpass my passions,
Never overlook the poor in this lifetime,
That's all that I'm asking..

Fly to the moon,
Create your own perspective,
Laugh at your calamities,
Retrace my untimely objectives

You are wonderful,
You are lovely,
You are always on your father's shoulders,
You will always be above me..

So fly free my little lady,
Into the lovely sky so blue,
Never, ever, question my love..
Your father indeed loves you!

  5. As a father and a writer, it never ceases to amaze me how your child inspires such strong feelings. Truly a wonderful tribute piece that so many of us can relate to. Every parent, poet or not should try to capture what you did in your writing. Thanks for sharing. LL

    This work is just beautiful! Simply..beautiful! The way that the words unfold equate a freshly cleaned sheet being carefully laid across a waiting bed..
    I am always astonished at the depth you manage to dig and at the beauty of the jewel (spoken/written word) you are ALWAYS able to pull out.
    I very much look forward to reading more!

    OUTSTANDING, MB!
