daddy's hand

As a warm summer breeze
magically floats atop waves
a child's laugh can be heard
clearly a short distance away.

With eyes like almonds
glowing bright as a moon
a boy is dotted with sand
when he hears a song from a loon.

Amongst pebbles and shells
thin strands of cattail weeds
he dips a toe in the ocean
squealing out with sheer glee.

He is joyful and innocent
hair a mop of golden curls
his shirt stained in patterns
of sand and water swirls.

As waves begin swelling
while the sun slowly dims
the boy with no sight
sports the most beautiful grin.

His daddy gently messes
hair a mop of golden curls
the boy reaches pudgy fingers
his daddy tenderly unfurls.

As the boy and his daddy
walk happily in the sand
the boy feels his strength
in his loving daddy's hand.

Glad I found this great poem my friend. The world generally fails to understand a father's love is as deep and powerful as a mother's love..... As each depends on the morals, principles and upraising taught to the individual, be it either man or woman.

Hi Lynn, This is a beautiful relationship between father and son. It was filled with a unconditional love. If more fathers can be like the one you skillfully wrotee about the world would be a better place. Although the boy couldn't see through his eyes he saw love in his father's heart. A without a doubt seven:-) Alexis
