As I Sit Watching

As I sit watching




I see her joy




The joy I once gave her




As I sit watching




I see the twinkle in her eye



The twinkle I haven’t seen in years



As I sit watching




I see her tears





Her tears of happiness





As I sit watching




I know I must let go




Let go of my girl





As I sit watching






I see her dancing




Dancing in arms that aren’t mine



As I sit watching




I wish I would have said no



No to losing her





As I sit watching
I want her to be happy
Happy no matter what

As I sit watching
I see them drive away
Drive off into the unknown

As I sit watching
I see her love
Love that once, was only mine

As I sit watching
I see the years fly
Where have the years gone?

As I sit watching
I see her tears
Tears of pain

As I sit watching
I see her bruises
Bruises he gave her

As I sit watching
I see her running
running back to me

As I sit watching
I see his fear
Fear of me coming

As I sit watching
I see bars
The bars of prison

As I sit watching


I realize . . .
The love of a father is unconditional

As I sit praying
I pray . . .
The Lord will forgive me for what I’ve done
