Dear Chris

by

Auguste

Dear Chris, I have a gift for you
The poems I give you that I write
Much better will you know my heart
In these I open it to light

So hard for men are tender words
And even fathers often grope
These words are meant to show my heart
To show my dreams and yes, my hope

I could not think a better gift
Your daddy wrote these all his years
Perhaps some use you'll find for them
They speak of life, of love and tears

My son, you are the best of me
The heart that beats within my chest
The very air that now I breathe
The only thing that I did best

I won't be with you all your life
I lit your candle with my own
One day you'll have a child and wife
So short my candle, when you're grown

And when at last my flame burns out
These words are left for you to see
To know your daddy better still
My words that resemble poetry

Such a sweet poem.  Very nice!

You can give without loving but you cannot love without giving
There is no danger of developing eye-strain from looking on the bright side of things

Auguste~
I've shared this with my own children.

'I won't be with you all your life
I lit your candle with my own
One day you'll have a child and wife
So short my candle, when you're grown'

I never thought of my life in this light before .....
Thank you.

Auguste...
          This is such a beautiful way to
        share yourself with your son. If
        more fathers would open themselves
        to their children, sons or daughters,
        we would have a much better world,
        and so would our grandchildren!!

             This is wonderful....
        You and your son are so lucky!!


I have but one goal in
life.........
To make you smile!
~~ Sunny ~~
