Today I heard your voice and saw your face. Yes, today was rough but hearing your voice made it worthwhile. The fight in me faltered to the emotions of the moment. While time has separated us, my love for you always remained.
Facing the effects of bad choices at even worse times causes a rift so deep and wide. There were no sides to take in the face of life. Parenting behind the scenes is never an easy road to travel for today; I heard your voice and saw your face.
Believing in yourself and loving even more leads the way to a brighter and better tomorrow. While time knows no answer, it has caused me such pain to relive every moment when a choice was made; today I heard your voice and saw your face.
Silently willing the past away, I keep you in my heart where I can see. I cover the pain as each day unfolds. I guard every memory of you today. Within the hours there lies a memory of a moment with you. Today, I heard your voice and saw your face.
To all the fathers who search for answers in loving your children from a distance, there is hope and love in every heart. What you seek you will eventually find. It is only time that awaits the love you share. To a dear friend so far yet so close, what you seek is what you have sought. Rick Stout, there will be peace in every soul with the patience of a dove and the will of a lion, you will make it through each time.
