As we get closer to closing out 2020 and moving into 2021, I’d like to share this poem written by one of my clients (shared with their permission). I found it so incredibly moving and powerful and I hope you do too… enjoy!
Baba Walking behind my father trying to follow But sometimes I make a turn when he doesn’t Into the darkness I collide But he’s never far, shining his light He’s searching for me He’s never far behind Sometimes another light shows up and tries to trick me And then it gets foggy My father doesn’t like when people try to trick me Running behind my father, I’m excited! I know the way! He tells me to slow down I don’t listen “But papa! I know the way! Follow me!” I step on something sharp, the pain radiates through my entire body I fall crying There’s pain in his eyes because he tried to warn me My father, I know he loves me he's always chasing after me he hugs me he allows me to lay on his lap and cry he never tells me “told you so” My Father, He’s alive He’s the One that lives inside Allowing me to be whole To thrive I know my Father loves me He sees all the things that I can’t Jesus Son of God Not the son of man He’s the beginning and the end He makes my world go ‘round Papa Daddy Baba Pá GOD
