.melancholy Dream - Poem by C R Clark

Many times when I’m alone, I dream of when we used to go
With sandwiches, out to the lake and watch the people swim
We’d laugh and play for hours, games with little meaning
Until the day had faded, then we’d pack and head for home

When you left, I felt like life was draining from my body
The endless ache of loneliness left me so forlorn
Despair would overtake me in the lonely mid night hours
If God had not been with me, I would not be here today

Often hard times make a man depend upon the Lord
And try to live his life, as God would have him to
I know he is the only hope this boy will ever have
My prayer is he will bring us back together very soon

I never will forget the first time I ever saw you
Wrapped up in a blanket, snuggled in a nurses arms
Nor the times you went to sleep, head upon my shoulder
Son, the first time you said “daddy” will ring forevermore

Often hard times make a man depend upon the Lord
And try to live his life, as God would have him to
I know he is the only hope this boy will ever have
My prayer is he will bring us back together very soon
