My father and I don't speak

We haven't for many years.

My heart breaks to think that we

Can't find a way to love again.

I'm sure his heart aches, too.

Where did we lose our way?

How did we grow so far apart?

I guess I really know.

Mom's death ripped us apart

So far that God can't bring us

Back to the center again.

A new wife, a new life.

Bitter words and memories.

And family animosities.

I'm afraid that one day he'll

Be gone from this world to the next.

Never knowing that I love him still.

When I meet him in heaven

Will he greet me, or will he turn

Away, both fearing and leaving

Tears in our hearts forever.

Dear Kathy,
I believe you have expressed the feelings of far too many women in our world. My message for them and for you is this:

Take comfort in knowing that in Heaven, everything is perfect. Thus, you and your father will spend eternity in a healed and loving relationship with God.

Dear Kathy,
Your poem touched my heart!
I can relate because my father was very distant from me.
This hurt growing up but God helped me through some very tough times.
Now like you, I hope to find peace with him in heaven.

Blessings!

Oh boy can I relate to this affectionally sad tale. There are no answers for a situation so painful. I pray in time, through God's help you and your father will re-unite....

Be always safe,
Karen
