He knocked

and knocked

and knocked

At the door

Of his child’s heart.

 

He called;

called out,

“I’m out

By the door

With all my heart.

 

Will you

open up

to me,

My child? Please,

Beloved one.

 

I see

you’re torn

apart,

My child. Know

What has become.

 

Your dad–

I’m here;

just here

For you; yes,

I’m here for you.”

 

Love waits

outside

child’s door

No matter

What odds be true.

 

Love stays;

abides;

faithful;

It lasts. Yes,

For me, for you.
