***one Child's Prayer

Rating: 3.0

I wish my Daddy would live here
I wish he didn’t have to go away
I wish if he could only for one day
Perhaps tell me he loved me at all
I would have known a father’s mind

I asked Santa, Tooth Fairy and even God
On Sundays and all ordinary days
I wish if he could only for just one day
Pass me by just so I’d wave him goodbye
I would have seen a father’s hand

I pray to God, Tooth Fairy and even Santa
On Sundays and all ordinary days
I wish I could find the bestest prayer
For my mother and all those who talk to me
For they have given me the mostest love

The bestest prayer I know for repaying a debt of gratitude in full is Nam-myoho-renge-kyo May all your precious dreams come true MCz

Fully agree with Patricia, some prayers are answered and some wishes are granted. Regards Chris

hi Sylvi this is such a lovely poem. i also wrote few poems about parents, perhaps you can read them, you'll be able to relate to them. keep writing, you write from a pure heart and mind. take care seema

I have to admit that when I read a writing such as this it makes me long for the daughter I never had . I always wanted a little girl. There's something special between a father and daughter that just can't be replaced if it's missing. That's what I find, when I read your words. Whatever your purpose in writing it, that's what it does to me. You know what that means don't you? I means you're a success. Greenwolfe 1962
