My Dad Left Me... My Father Found M

My Dad Left Me... My Father Found Me!

I remember my dad tucking me

into bed each night.

I somehow knew “everything was

going to be allright.”

The many Bible stories Dad had read.

Each night before I went to bed.

I remember that glow Dad had on his face.

It was like love all over the place.

Then one day...Dad left. I didn't know why.

The many nights I'd lay awake and would cry.

How could this happen? I was so sad.

I became very upset, angry and mad.

How could God let this happen to our family?

I thought Dad loved us and was happy.

Dad never returned. He never did explain.

I began to curse the mention of his name.

Then one day I read the Bible and began to see.

How much Jesus really does love me.

I asked him to be the father of my life today.

I'll never forget the words he had to say.

I'll be with you each step that is taken.”

I love you so much...you'll never be forsaken.”

Jesus ... my heavenly father has

given me love so precious.

I have a new relationship—with him—

that's so nutritous!

My dad left me. My Father found me.

And now each day...his love surrounds me!

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!
