A Father's Love.....

Streaming rivulets of silent tears

that only increase with the passing years;

a heartfelt yearning to stop the pain

wanting the hurt child to live well again.

Only death will cause this heartache to cease

and for tears to dry in the facial crease

of the devoted father who tends his son

from early morning 'til day is done.

A life laid down, 'tis a father's love

for a man-child who cannot live above

a life of being cared for and ever helped

every milestone earned and sorely felt.

Thus father and son walk gently together

knowing this journey won't last forever;

and in spite of the challenges that they face

their journey together is a walk not a race.....
