Still In Love

Still In Love...


My son came to me with

a question on his mind.

I said; “Not now son—

I just don't have the time.”


He said, “Daddy—are you still

in love with Mommy?”

Do you love her like you did when

I was in her tummy?”


My eyes choked with tears;

Yes son I really do!”

I'm in love with her...

and I appreciate you.”


Daddy—will you always love

me like you do mom?”

Yes my son—my love for you

will always belong.”


I looked down and much

to my surprise.

There were tears running

down my sons's eyes.


He came running to me with

his arms wide open.

Thank you daddy” were his words spoken.


I picked him up and gave

him a great big hug.

As I let him down, on my shirt I felt a tug.


His little arm reached up to grab my hand.

I knew that what I said,

he began to understand.


I love his mom so much—my wonderful wife.

She's been such a blessing-

a great part of my life!

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!
