TITLE: I Need Your Love Always

You call to me and i answer.
Sometimes i am stubborn,
and you call again, finding
that sometimes i turn my
face away.

Sometimes I hear your voice,
and yet I close my ears and
also the vents to my heart...
that i might not answer.

Yet when you do not call I cringe,
stumbling in the darkness where
night becomes my cell, and
loneliness my robe.

When I do not hear your voice
I wonder if I still have favor
with you, or if by taking you
for granted I have caused you to
turn away from me.

But in all of my selfish moments
I come to the realization, that in
my life I need you more than you
need me.

And I awaken as if from a dream,
longing for the sound of your voice,
or for your spirits kiss upon my
cheek along with a warm hug from
your always embracing arms...

For Father, I do need your
love always.

Just beautiful, and so very true. I like the way you wrote this, it's easy to read and flows so nicely. I'll probably print this out and put it on my fridge! Well done.

Well written with a great message! I especially liked:
"But in all of my selfish moments I come to the realization, that in
my life I need you more than you need me."

Good job! -God Bless you~

This is beautiful. I'm not sure if changing from a small i to a capital I was to show the MC gaining confidence. I often don't get the subtle nuances in poems. Nice job.
