A Father's Love

A Father's Love

I wake up to find You right where I left you the night before. You work tirelessly scrubbing, rinsing, washing.  "It's a new day!" You say, as you greet me with a smile, so peaceful it could calm the storms within me. You calm the storms within me. What did I do to deserve this? I laid myself in the mud trudged through the muck while my enemy watched on and pushed me down when I tried to get up. Then You picked me up.
