Special Documents - reflections
John J. Uskert
In my mind's eye, memories of distant past remain clear, distinct;
Although such memories may begin to fade, I, as I must, hold them near to me ;
You have been a loving child, a joy in my life;
The years gone by only predict the fleeting of time, over which we have no control.
Memories may become contorted over time, perhaps even confused with age;
Yet I am satisfied with my role in your development and maturation to adulthood;
You are in control of your own destiny; I merely was chosen to hopefully be
influential in your young years in a positive way.
I pray you have been equipped with necessary skills through your journey;
skills and talents, developed over time for you to be a positive being;
Drawing strength from your Spirituality and prayers from all sources.
I am confident that you will, one day, once again recognize me as a Daddy, your Daddy.
On this special day, I reflect on your birth, a joyous occasion many years ago.
You were and are a special person; you have brought joy to your mother and to me;
I am thankful for the years we spent in our relationship as father-daughter;
I cannot be more proud to be your Daddy,
We cannot predict what the future holds, but we must make the best of our time;
I pray that you remain physically, mentally and especially Spiritually strong;
That you remain safe and comfortable in your surroundings far away from me
and that you also keep me, as best as you are able, near and dear to you. I love you.
