Father


 
A Poem By Nancy

 

Father by Nancy

A whimpering infant creature
Weak
Sickly
Of strange countenance
Found
Above
Brought
Below

Placed…
No…
Received
Welcomed

By the Father
Into his arms
Into his care
Into his life

The little one
Accepted
Cherished
Lodged
In the Father’s heart
All warmth
Affection
Love
To supplant
A grim birthright
The wintry world
Of rags
Trash
Abandonment

Father by name
By choice
And by nature
Tenderly
He nurtures
The baby
Patiently
He guides
The toddler
Intuitively
He values
The child

Perceptively
He respects
The adolescent

Devotedly
He honors
The adult

~

Dearest, Father
You have
Given me life
More surely than if
I were
Of your body
What words
Can say
What my soul feels
What my heart knows
Of you

Beloved, Father
I am
Because of you
A man
The man
My Catherine loves

Life is you, H
