So many times those that love us do it in ways that others do not. What I mean is that they think they say they love you and they do....but not the same way you or I might. Doesn't mean that they don't just cause they don't say it. Seems easy to me to say "I love you"....but to others it is the hardest thing in the world to do.
This is by far my favorite poem of yours. You have a talent your father did not. You are able to comunicate with words to the masses. And you do it with flair.
And I know he has love for you....and must be proud in his own special way.
Share what you are for you are what you share

Liz, this is so very good, I do see this side of the dilema, it is still so difficult to change. With your permission I'd love to print this out and keep it for a reminder to how it feels to be on the "needing to hear it" side. Thanks again for sharing with me,
First Knight, straet and Moonsine, I appreciate all of your comments It's amazing what my children tell me about themselves, having been always urged to be open, but then I learn as time goes on, those things they didn't, for fear of my feelings or reaction. I guess we all do that, but when someone is in distress, how much they need those words of love! Liz
