Father's Love - Poem by Jacob Courtney

Dear God,
I felt something amazing today. I was holding my
Young son who was restless who could not find
Slumber. I looked deep into his eyes and I smiled
Then he smiled. He warmed my heart with such joy
I could not help but feel proud. This child means so
Much he is near and dear to my heart. His laugh
His smile as he giggles. He looks at me and knows
He is safe he knows that he is loved. Father,
when I cupped him in my arms I feel his breathe rise
and Fall I feel his excitement as he moves to and from.
Father, it's such a joyous peaceful moment just as
It was the day he was born. I wonder this joy this
Love that beams throughout me as I look down at
My son, it must be how you feel. The day we are
Born into your kingdom when our faith is that of a
Child's I wonder do you hold us and smile do you
Smile when we smile when we look to you for love
For joy. Father, do you rub your hands through our
Hair as we get sick, do you tell us it's gonna be ok.
Do you celebrate our milestones just as I do My
Son's. Do you smile when I smile, do you laugh
When I laugh do you look on me as your child with
Pride do I bring joy to you Father. Lord, Father,
Hold this child of yours as I hold this child of mine.
A Child of Yours
