Father I want to make amends

Not sure if you are in hell or Heaven

If you can hear me

I need for you to listen

Please lend me your ear

I want to make it clear

That you no longer have to fear

Your angry little girl

Has become a grown woman now

In more ways than one

I have forgiven you for

Everything that you have done

I have learned to move on

To not allow grudges

To destroy me

I may not know all of your story

Still I give God the glory

For helping me it has healed me

I see things a lot more clearly

Forgiveness is everything

Now that I am a mother

And I have children of my own

New thoughts have been born

Even though you wasn’t around

I have found

That’s it’s best to turn

My frown upside down

Everything happens for a reason

Regardless God made you my father

You help to make me

Because of you I have my two babies

Blessed to see possibilities

I’ve done what it takes

For my soul’s sake

To realize that human beings

Make mistakes

And it may sound weird

But not having you around

Wasn’t such a bad thing

Every event that took place

In my life has help to mold me

Into the person that I am today

Yes you too are apart of that

I am sorry that I didn’t

Say these things at your hospital bed

I guess I wasn’t ready

I guess it wasn’t time

This is what I want and need

You to know

I will now allow your soul to rest

Father you sleep now

I forgive you

I just had to let my feelings out

Happy Father’s Day

Rest In Peace
