When I first came into this world You could not be there. But mommy promised every night That you would always care.
Each day I grow a little more And I'm beginning to look like you Mommy always says you love me And daddy, I love you too.
Don't think that I am mad at you my heart is full of fear. but daddy I forgive you I want to make that clear.
I know each day you think of me and wish you could come home, each day you also fight for me so that I am free to roam.
You should know I miss you daddy And I really need you near. so please be safe at least until the next time you are here.
Words not spoken
- by Beatrice Boyle58
Although he could not say with words The love he felt inside He treasured every moment And his heart would fill with pride He never said I love you But he came to every game Even in defeat his son knew He loved him just the same He'd pat him on the head Or maybe ruffle his hair And tell him he was proud of him As long as he played fair When he graduated college I love you wasn't said He smiled as he shook his hand Mumbling, well done, my boy instead When his son went to war He trembled as he spoke And brushing away the tears He made a little joke
Now, his son's come home And he stands with eyes downcast His hands stroking the coffin Saying I love you son at last!
