Forgive me, Father.

Look fondly upon me,
I know my path has strayed.
For now, I cannot follow through.
It’s mostly because I miss you.

Look fondly upon me,
My choices haven’t been the best.
A part of me still wonders.
Allow my thought to wander.

Look fondly upon me,
I am going to need it.
Not knowing much, But for what is certain
I cannot love the LOVE who took you away.
