"In The Dark Of The Night" A Father's Day Poem

In the dark of the night,
when I'm alone in my room
I remember you Father of mine.

When I'm alone in my head,
and the fear comes along
I remember you Father of mine.

The hand that should
have brought comfort,
the touch that should
have been love,

The voice that should
have been gentle,
the words that should
have been kind.

The face that should
have brought calming,
the eyes that should
have been gentle.

You came and you took
what didn't belong,
You left behind
fear, shame and hate.

Fathers and sons,
play games by the light
of the day, but yours
were in the blackness of night.

Our love, it was special,
it had to hide,
under covers and
behind blinds.

I wasn't to tell,
not a word, not a sound
not even to mom,
was it allowed.

So for years I was silent
even to me,
but now that is over,
I will say it out loud.

In the dark of the night,
when I'm alone in my room,
I remember you Father of mine.
