My thoughts of you are from over forty years past,

Once a reality and a life that was our everyday scene.

Now memories kept alive from a child to a man,

Father, you remain In my heart, I keep you alive.

I can not see you except In my dreaming, closed eyes,

If not for a picture I have to keep your face In my mind.

Can you see me father, have you watched as my life marches on,

I pray that some of the things I’ve done have made you proud.

One day I’ll see your wonderful face and speak of those days long gone,

A different life In heaven, I’m much older now, no longer a child.

Can you see me, father, do you see my face, do you know a son’s name.?

  1. In Psalm 39 He tells us that He has known us before we were in our mothers’ wombs…so…what is 40 years to Him? A gnat’s breath, the flutter of a hummingbird wing…/40 years His son was in the wilderness…did He forget him? Your name is written on His heart since the beginning of time and eternity-He knows you better than you know yourself! Rejoyce!
    I love this post-as always! Thank you!
