Dear Dad...

Dear Dad…

Dad, I’m not sure what to say to you…

Since the time you said that I betrayed you.


You have put me down so many times.

Often wonder what’s going through your mind.


You incite me over but are busy with immigrants.

True family time, to you, seems “not signifigant.”


So much of your time is wrapped amongst others.

What abouit your original family?  Why bother?


You try to “punish” your brother

who visits you ex.

True love nad forgiveness? 

I am “perplexed.”


Via e-mail, you’ve told me things

and put me down.

Are you the kind of dad a son

 would be around?


I encourage you to put in practice Eph. 4:29

Try to speak words that are

 wholesome and kind.


Don’t be involved with things

that are temporary.

Jesus is more precious that

 anything monetary.


Are you the Godly dad t

hat I once knew?

Can I say, “Dad,,,  I’m so

proud of YOU???”

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
