Missing You - Poem by Bernard Franklin

As time goes by, I’ve missed so much,
your loving hugs and gentle touch.
As your bodies grow too fast to see,
I hope you’ll both remember me.

A few hours here, a few days there,
some stolen time to show I care.
Small locks of hair, I’ve kept for years,
to have you close, would halve my tears.

I’m far away, I’m in a mess,
so in my prayers your heads I bless.
As God protects you safe and sound,
I’m feeling strong, new faith I’ve found.

For every joy there is a cost,
for every gain there’s something lost.
For every grief there must be hope,
It’s natures way to help me cope.

I can’t explain my long term goals,
but I’d like to help your mortal souls.
For if you know how much I feel,
I’m sure my heart will start to heal.

So remember girls how much I care,
your life of joy please let me share.
And if your ever feeling sad,
just ring me up I wont be mad!

I’ll love you every day I live,
I’ll give you all I have to give.
I’ll never lose my faith in you,
I’m there in everything you do.

As I say goodbye, and let you go,
my pain and pleasure mix and flow.
As I drive away, you wave at me,
but my broken heart you cannot see.

Please love this man, who loves you so,
please see a friend and not a foe.
Two little girls are all I had,
I’m so very proud you call me ‘Dad’.
