I wish that I could see you face to face.
I wish we could walk through your master piece,
with my small hand gently embraced by yours.
I wish that I could look upon your face,
and know you as well as I know your love.

You are home and I alone in this place,
where the tumultuous tide does not cease,
and the day to day life’s always a chore.
Where the nightmares of the flesh often chase,
but I know you are watching from above.

Once to know the look of love in your eyes,
and to feel you hold me against your chest,
to hear your tender voice whisper my name,
to know you’re only a heartbeat away;
you my Father and I your precious child.

Oh, conversations our walks would comprise,
as hours and hours before us rest.
We would saunter along a wind swept plain,
and enjoy one another for a day,
you my Father and I your precious child.

With your gentle love comes unfailing grace.
A strength you have instilled within my soul,
to guide me along weather beaten days,
and keep me on the narrow path to home,
and keep me on the narrow path to home.

what a peaceful, serene poem! Beautiful, especially the last stanza, with its very effective use of repitition.
