to the one
who took their time
to honour life
on a sidewalk
this morning

you give me hope
in a world
that has often failed
to recognize
its own kind

Every Girl is Some Man’s Daughter

Posted on Updated on

I read this awe-inspiring, genuinely beautiful post a few months back, only to read it again today and realize how amazing it is to have a father figure who not only respects all women but is also a true inspiration. Robert, one of my most treasured readers, thank you for this..thank you for being you!

I love my little girl.  I still call her “Little Girl.”  She’s now 14, as tall as her mother, and full of aspirations, new feelings, and visions of a coming future.

I remember when I first learned that my wife was pregnant.  I was stunned, scared, and in denial.  I could think of no way that this would work.  I was selfish, and still very much a boy (no matter what my biological age was then).  Never having had a father figure of any kind, I just couldn’t conceive that I could manage.  I was worried.  I didn’t know what to do.

dearest Divine
help us, guide us, bless us
in your ever flowing love
in your eternal light
may what we do
only brings us closer to you

now that you have brought us this far
hold our hand and show us the way
clear our path to you
please don’t lead us astray

help us realize our gift
fuel our inner flame
with your holy name
help us remember our purpose
and why we came

make this purifying experience
easier on us
on our souls, on our worldly existence
polish us
enlighten us
so leaving only good behind
we do more than our empty words
could ever express

may all those who pass by
be blessed with the clarity
choosing the right from the wrong
they are led
to where they belong

if you are in our humble hearts
your essence blends
in the speech that flows
and the transcending spirit
branching upwards
unceasingly glows

with a heart full of gratitude
I only ask of you
to keep us close
quieten our minds
so you, my Beloved
can be the overflow

wandering with the eye of certainty
tasting sacredness and evolving into nothingness
I keep falling in love with everything I see

times may change
years may pass
may my heart find peace
only in things that last

at the end of the day
at the end of my life
may it only be meaningful things
for which I strive

may I never be misunderstood
or cause someone pain
may only clarity, selfless love
pulsate through my veins

people might change
they might want to come and go
but when the time is right
just make it easier for me to let go

through this journey, through this life
its your love and light I ask
innocence of a child
kindness in this heart

it is not one less year of this life
it is one year closer to You
in everything I seek, believe and do
may I only appease You
