***one Child's Prayer - Poem by Sylvi Sylva

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

    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

    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.

    Fully agree with Patricia, some prayers are answered and some wishes are granted. Regards Chris (Report) Reply

    The bestest prayer I know for repaying a debt of gratitude in full
