I, the Father

Updated: Jun 30, 2023



All my life I have heard their sound

But they rejected the want of me

My unfading desire to see

I, the father.

It was never meant to be


We had each other. Desires abound

Still, they rejected both you and me

My unfading desire to see

I, the father.

Was never meant to be


We tried, we cried, in tears, our love drowned

I rejected you, they still rejected me

My unfading desire continued to be

I, the father.

It was never meant for me


Finally, I gave up, moved on, uncrowned

I rejected them as they rejected me

My unfading desire for me to see

I, the father.

I would never ever be


But then my life turned itself around

Rejection was no longer a concern to me

You invited me to be and see

I, the step-father.

With a fervent hope that it would be


And then I heard the special sound

No longer rejected they completed me

Finally, my forever desire to be

I, the grandfather.

My heart swells inside of me


Our trio now break our silent sound

I have so much love for all and each

Now comes my chance to cajole and teach

Life’s hopes and joys are within my reach
