I long for heaven but stuck on earth.
So what has happened since my birth?
Lost my father but no excuse
To mope around become a recluse.
Although at eight, a tender age,
To be deprived one cannot gage.
Condemn himself for evil thoughts
Or future plans that come to naught!
Good thoughts including fathers care
Adventure plenty that we would share.
All gone! This his camaraderie lost
Hating God not counting the cost!
Years of hero worship gone!
His happy smile I counted on.
No thought of heaven then had I
Except to go I would have to die!
God’s heart was broken too, you know.
It was because He loved me so.
For years I struggled until I came
To realize to my shame…
How much He loved and cared for me,
His torturous death so cruelly.
This He did that I would realize
How much I wanted that heavenly prize!
So memories linger as I think
Precious memories that form a link
Between my dad and I, I will see
And be with Him Eternally!
