Love From Your Child - Poem by Richard Goolsby

I lay here thinking, Thinking of my life, Thinking of the disappointment, Contention, worry and strife.

Thinking of what could of been, Or maybe what could be, What has been, And what I failed to see.

Thinking is this all there is, Should I expect more, I mean don't I have everything, With these two kids I adore.

Sighs as I think of attaining the stars, The one thing I want to achieve, is true happiness and love, Something now I'm not sure I believe.

Then I lay back and smile, As things don't seem so sad, I hold my children tight, And hear I Love you Dad! ! ! ! !
