This post was prompted by Kellie’s Free Write Friday prompt and I hope you will visit her blog to see some great writers. She can be found at:
You have chosen to open this envelope
You see that I left it purposely behind
I hope all the words that you now read
Give you a glimpse into my frame of mind.
The day that we met was one very special
Pain the turned into such a blessing too
For two hearts truly became three that day
As your Mother and I were introduced to you.
I’ve watched you grow from that crying bundle
Into a woman to with children of your own
With unexpected losses we’ve shared already
You’ve taken up a path without being shown.
There are so many things that I already said
Undoubtedly still things I should have done
But I know you’ve never lacked from my feelings
From joyous to helpless, from depressing to fun.
Now my legacy shall move on from this time
I’ve shared whatever wisdom I might have had
Your children given values to honor the name
Now the rest is up to you, All my love, Dad.
