For you, and only you......
I would sacrifice myself, I would give everything, and not think twice about it.
As the sun dawns on each day, invading the sky with streaks of pale light, growing brighter, only to fade in the night, when the abyss of darkness is pock-marked by a multitude of shining stars......each and every day, each and every hour......I miss you.
Without you, I feel like a ghost, a humble spirit.....not existing, never have existed. Lost in a perilous course of blocked passageways and locked doors, spinning around and around....with no end, and no beginning.
I would give up my hopes, my dreams, my every desire......just for you to have a flicker of happiness.
A father doesn't have to think about this......it happens naturally, like the air I breathe, and the image of your face imprinted on the back of my lids every time I blink.
For you, I would run through a raging fire, swim a torrid ocean, scale the highest peak, venture into the depths of beyond and back again.
I would.....give up writing.
Stop thinking about what is the right thing to say, and concentrate on the right thing to do.
I would push aside any skill I may have with the written word.....and forget about blank pages.
And focus on my blank heart.
For you, I don't need to write. I don't need to know how to write. I would give up everything, everything.
For you, and only you.
