Memories That Stay
Author: Clive B Ringshall


As you talked I listened with such intent,
I saw such love growing in you,
A love our family will always feed,
Youíre eyes as heavy as your heart this day,
As we parted I love you and that wonít change,

To love another with such caring I feel everyday,
Itís sometimes hard when all they do is play,
No matter what you know,
Mistakes will always follow,

Youíre heart takes over wanting to give all the best,
In my eyes my best was not youíre best,
My mind records our every event,
My heart scratches it upon my soul to keep,

This love for you can be but once,
Others could follow but will never compare,
For you my child were my first,

The mark shall stay for it feels so real,
Maybe one day soon you will understand and know,
In time I hope that Iím forgiven,
In time youíll grow and Iíll one day again hold,

I see you cry over our separation,
I tell you soon together weíll be again I promise,

All Iíll say is live day to day,
The love you have will be youíre strength within,
My thoughts for you are snug and warm,
Up To The Sky And Back
Remember this always
As it comes from me and Iím youíre Dad

proud daddy

I hope you shared this with your child. It'll make him or her feel so special . I like reading about love for the offsprings. So many kids don't feel love by thier parents. Good write yehhh
