Take My Hand...



Here I am...
Take my hand...
Not because I ask you to take it...
Not just because I extend it to you...
But because you need to take it...
You need what taking my hand means...
What it represents...
You need the guidance...
The leadership...
The one to watch over you...
Because you need the oversight...
The discipline...
The structure...
Because you need the pleasure...
The pain...
To be of service...
Take my hand...
Because you trust me...
You respect me...
You believe in me...
Because to me you need to give yourself...
To give all you are...
All you have...
To be shown who you are...
Who you can be...
To help you reach your potential...
Take my hand...
So I can enable you to be yourself...
With no hiding...
No running...
No false pretenses...
Without being judged...
Or looked down upon...
Together we can go far...
Farther than you've ever known...
Farther than you knew existed...
If it's what you feel you need...
And I am who you need...
There's only one thing...
One thing left to do...
Take my hand...

  2. Is the word Father a play on words?
    Father, as opposed to Farther?
    Excellent poem!

  3. Than you all very much for your kind words. I'm happy you enjoyed it and your thoughts are much appreciated.

    @growinguplittle...damn, I have been called out on my inability to type or spell. No play on wards intended...this time anyway. The correction has been made. Thank you for pointing it out. :)
