Words for My Dad

Sitting there in my dad’s ole’ pick up truck.

Feeling somewhat paralyzed, I felt stuck.

I possessed feelings for my dad I needed to convey.

Contemplating just what and how to say

I counted to three underneath my breath,

Felt like I was meeting death.

All at once, I let the words out.

But his reply was with a cursing shout.

“Why must you talk that way?”

“Love is something I don’t need to say.”

“I say I love you by the fact that you are fed.”

“Don’t you have a roof over your head?”

He sat there continuing to tear me a part.

I guess I should have kept the words “I love you” inside my heart.”

God bless you in your pain and suffering. I know it hurts to the core of your being. Rejection is a painful thing that tries to kill the soul but it can't, unless we let it. But thanks be to God He loves to hear us tell Him how much we love Him and He loves us even more.

The one thing i have learnt in life is that we must always do our part right.If this poem is about you then you did the right thing.Abba Father loves you more than any earthly father ever could. Be blessed as you continue to be a blessing.
