You Felt My Pain

Spread the love

You blinked your eyelids, twice,
and like an invisible river,
tears welled up in your eyes;
you just couldn’t afford it’s flow;
for as a man, you must pay that price.

like a snail, I was slow
in discovering your pain,
but at least I did, I realized;
that when I screamed,
my voice pierced your heart;
when I fell, it stained your loving art;
when I cried about my troubles,
you were troubled, it made you shiver;
you knew you needed to rise.

On your knees, I’d seen you pray,
and unlike other men, you didn’t slay,
no, you were on your own,
and in your own way,
you made hay during sunshine,
just to make my dream come true.

Father, I will always be grateful;
for you felt my pain,
and in your own way,
you took my pain away.

Wishing all fathers, a Happy Father’s Day! May God Bless You!
