    The pain of this day
    has faded away
    just like that it has disappeared
    gone into complete forgetfulness

    The father this day celebrates
    is not for the one I never knew
    There are no gifts
    no cards of appreciation for all he has done
    for it is a day of truth

    There will be no more harsh words
    no poems of his parental uselessness
    He'll just be a man
    born one day
    dying on another
    God be with him

    This day is now for me
    no longer a painful day trying to remember him
    I am loved
    I am appreciated
    I provide
    I am a father
    It is my day

    Happy Father's Day to all men who love and make the way for theirs. Proud to be sharing this day with you... as men, as fathers.

    What a poignant piece...speaking of reconciliation and a new way of seeing what is most important. You have life, and you are living in a way that exemplifies one of the most important things a good man is; a good father.

    Wonderful, BE. :heart:

    Have a blessed Father's Day!
