Written from the heart

This one is for all the fathers out there that have made the choice to not be part of their children’s lives. And perhaps also for those seeking inspiration to listen to the whispers of the heart and to speak your truth.

Now as he lay in the hospital bed
Time is ticking away
He left when I was 3
I could never really see
What was going on
‘Mom what’s wrong?’ 
Asked daily 
You’ll understand when you are older
The time is gone
This is my father.

~Evan, age 16
