What Is Small & Delicate Upon First Waking
Becomes Strong & Mighty In Dreams

** Read Loud
Read italics after to hear the second story
 
 
TWINKLED EYE VIEW OF FATES DERIVATION
    The instant you were born
 
GODS PEACE FOUND ITS SOULS SIGNIFICANCE
    My life took on new meaning
 
AROSE IN CUSTODY STALWART ARMS HELD
    Holding you in my arms
 
DESTINIES CROSS AFFECTED
    Two fates meeting– Tiny fingers entwined with mine
 
BRIGHT BEAMING JUDGMENTS ENTRANCING
    Looking up at us with dazzling smiling eyes
 
RESPLENDENT AS THE SUN’S HALCYON DAYS
    As radiant as the sun in summer
 
PERSUADING CREATIONS REVELATION
    Coaxing nature to display
 
OF A PERFUMED SOVEREIGN OFFERING
    Its most fragrant gift
 
UPON OMNIPOTENT STAGE
    In broad array
 
DIVINELY DISPLAYED
    As if to present
 
AS IF TO EXCLAIM
    Or to say
 
HALLELUJAH
    All praise be to GOD
 
FOR UPON THIS PROFOUND INTIMATE EPOCH
    For on that day
 
DID GRACE’S MEASURE FULLY REVEAL
    I was given the gift
 
TRUE LOVELINESS
    Of a daughter
 
AND A FATHERS LOVE
    Thanks be to GOD

Multiple stories simultaneously.

1st story - Christ on the Cross (A Fathers Love)
2nd story - The birth of my daughter (a fathers love)

* I used a translation (italics) of the words in the first story to tell the second story
* I used my Daughters name Tressa (Summer) Rose (natures way of saying Hallelujah - all praise be to GOD) to help tell both stories.

Note: I was challenged to write a poem... a significant moment in my childhood... I was to keep it mysterious... I elected to tell the mysterious story of my second birth... as well as tell the story of my becoming a man... the day my first child was born... the day I started truly living for someone else...

Brilliant. Both stories are great. I can relate to the second one as well. I am thinking about when I held my daughter in my arms right after she was born. You sure have a gift of writing.

Did you have a chance to read the notes directly after the poem?

I do not believe in coincidences :)

In my lifes events there has often been moments where those I have lost will send a kiss of chance my way just to say I love you and everything is going to be ok...

I believe this is one of those moments were statistically one should not deny what is there...

Youve been kissed by a Rose dear sister poet...

Thank you brother! They are a double blessing :) the blessing of knowing them and watching them grow... then the blessing of maturity that comes from someone else being in your care

Really beautiful, I dont have children of my own, but there once were two little girls in my life that I love with a fatherly love. So it still struck me in my heart deeply. Also the faith aspect is beautiful, as a follower of Christ, it was really touching .

I can relate to all of it. I have a lot respect for Christians, I was one for fifteen years.

I don't allow my son to read the majority of my poetry, he is 12. When he gets home from school he'll read this one of yours. :)

I hear you brother :)

Thanks for being you and especially for taking the time to support my voice even though some parts of the song you could not relate to...

Big props to you :)

I'm not really big on the Christian theme(not pertaining to this poem, in general), but I am a father. This is truly beautiful, your daughter will cherish it.
