More than a Father – a Poem
More than a father to me
giving me life and identity.
Never leaving, always present,
covering, protecting, staying.
“I have born you. You are mine!
In my arms, you will be fine.”
More than a mother to me,
tenderly nurturing, feeding.
Never condemning, always forgiving.
“I love you with an everlasting love!
Let me comfort you, my child.”
More than a friend to me
sharing secrets, tears, and joy,
heart to heart and hand in hand.
“With me your soul is safe.
Keep on walking and be brave!”
Yes, you are much more than this,
mother, father, Lord and King.
You are just my everything!
Filling every void and thirsty space
with the sweetness of your grace.
