For I have found
As a child raised by a mother
That life is never so clear cut
Having a father only every other week
Even as then I had no mother
Reality was that I was never really without
Listening quietly to the back of my mind
Especially in times of fear
Sinking into my lonely heart
Soothing whispers of love from On High
I have found that I don’t like the phrase ‘fatherless child’ or ‘motherless child,’ because I believe that all were born from Heavenly Parents who sent us down to Earth to have earthly parents and to learn and grow. So even when we live in homes with only one parent or the other, we still have Parents who love us and want to help.
It’s just that sometimes we need to learn to ask for that help.
