Happy Fathers Day

my eye's are filled with tears
and my mouth with cries of dispair
my heart is filled with remorse
and soul the bitterness of regret
i have a mind lacking
the conscioueness to repent
having only the will to resent
what fate drew to a close
how can I go on
having no posterity
no part of me
nothing for which i would surely die
still possessing that final lesson
that i would love to pass on
i have a name for a son
and precious love for a daughter
yet neither came to appear
never were the special memories
that i would hold so dear
happy fathers day? maybe
let's see how it plays out

    This poem comes from the heart about your wishes of being a dad. Not all persons become moms or dads but you never know you may meet that special someone who already has a family. You will have to see how life pans out in the future. love phyl

    Dear John, your pain will ease a bit as the years pass by, but you will always miss your father. Such a sad poem. I didn't understand the comment you left on my poem, but I hope you are dong well. (I wish I'd been able to have children too.) Love you, Carolyn
