Homeless Mans Love For His Daughter

A homeless man played his guitar,
for coin rewards put in a jar.
 A lonely life he always led,
but in his heart a love he had.
 This love he thought of all the time,
 during the cold days brought sunshine.
 His songs were of a girl he loved,
he sang to her, with stars above.
 So many years had gone on by,
but in his heart, and reasons why.
 There was this hope that would not die,
the thought of her just made him cry.

Dedicated to my 
daughter Ashley...
Michael Tor

A most heartfelt accounting Michael..For me it Highlights thingss that have affected someone so much A chain of events is put in motion.' Although in The worlds scheme ( they may appear small ) Yet we can carry them for decades.' Often the Fallout for others is punative..Yet God can turn Things around.' Though the euphrates drys up Prayers will ever be flowing ' God bless

A FAV for my list, Michael. Very touching, Michael. Though have never lived very close since college, I love my daughters so much it hurts to be separated by miles and means. All I can do is Love and pray. Your heartful thoughts touched my heart today, my friend. Blessing, Bill

Dear Michael, your dedication poem for your kid is simply outstanding. It beautifully expresses the intensity of your feelings for her. A father's love for his daughter, like the songs that pour from your guitar, sustains her even in times of scarcity. This familial bond's strength is simply amazing! Your poetry elicits a deep emotional response from any father who adores his darling daughter, Michael.

A father's love for his daughter-- plays the rhythms of his guitar and sustains him on meager means--such is the power of kindred love! Your poem tugs the heart rooting for every father and their beloved daughters, Michael. Your love for Ashley adorns this poem my friend. A FAVE for this elegant expression--a heartfelt song!
