Now I See

 I remember when i was younger
shortly after the age of six,
both my heart and spirit were broken
to the point that God could never fix.
 It was the first time i felt resentment
it was the first time i ever truelly cried,
It was the last time i ever spoke with God
it was on the day my father died.
 I felt God had wrongfully punished me
so i got down on my knees and prayed,
I begged God to " Please " bring back my dad
i promissed him i'd do anything he'd say.
 As the days went by; along with the weeks
so did the months just like the years,
slowly i excepted my fathers death 
but only after the shedding; of atleast a thousand tears.
 I learned early on in my childhood
that God does'nt answer heart felt prayers,
so never again would i look up to him
i could'nt speak to a God that did'nt care.
It was'nt until 34 years later
again i was down on bending knee's,
I looked to the sky and began to cry
please don't take my step dad away from me.
He taught me my morals and values
he's shown me how to be a man,
he instilled in me survival
like only a father truly can.
 It was right then and there at that moment
as a child;I saw how god answered my prayer,
he could not bring me back my dad
so he sent me another one;  one who twice as much has cared.
              I Love You Dad!

    Very good write. I only lost my father in 2004 but it still hurtd. When he was dying I also prayed to God to take his pain away or take me instead. So I can relate to this.

    Oh! My this is very moving, now i think this is your 6 year old memories on surface and paper. I know the feeling of losing and feeling betrayed at a very young age. David, I'm over whelmed at the way you handled your pride. God, does answer even if we don't understand the results.. Your a prized poet... take care,..Linda H...

    What a very heartfelt poem this is David, sometimes it does seem that way but what you say here holds so true-- things happening to us sometimes don't make sense at the moment but in time, the answers fall into place -- keep your strong faith in God-- thank you for sharing, David :)
