God Given

As children, things were rough.
Seeing you suffered were so tough.
Took you in as my own,
Into teenagers you have grown.
I taught you everything I know.
Into beautiful people you have grown.
We all have our scars.
Time with you were the best by far.
A time to hold and a time to let go.
God's word and way I have sowed.
In blood we were apart they say,
But in my heart, you'll forever stay.
It's time. I'm giving you back.
It's love you'll never lack.
To God the glory,
That's your father's story.
