    Even though after all these
    years you haven't been here,
    I pray every night that you are
    somewhere near

    I may not know much about
    you, but I do know deep
    in my heart I always loved
    you

    Maybe loving you is not so
    smart, because I know you
    should've stayed here from
    the very start

    Your face is what I need
    to see, because I know
    that you are what made me

    To have just one hug would
    mean so much
    I want to let you know
    I grew up fast, but I
    will always remember my past

    Day to day I wonder why
    you left my side, why couldn't
    you stay here knowing you'r
    my father and have much pride

    Sometimes I just sit and cry
    wondering if you even said
    good-bye

    Today I stand here stong and
    proud, reaching out for your
    hand, hopefully now you can
    be a man

    I know nobody is perfect
    so I will accept you with
    all your faults and
    mistakes

    Take my hand and follow me
    becuase I want nothing
    more but to have you back
    in my life...

    i'm trying to get past my resentment for my father as well and at times it works. but at other times, it doesn't. i think i need to pray that i can have the forgiveness that you obviously do. this was a wonderful piece and really touched me cause i know this, i've lived this. thanks for sharing

    the undying love of a child, the stillness is never disturbed
    no matter what, we always seem to love our parents unconditional
    even though it's taught religiously, it seems to be something
    we do innately

    conscious piece you bring...feeling this
