Physical Strength

Sitting in my cell with precious thoughts in my mind
As I gaze up at the picture of my daughter
Looking innocent and beautiful as can be
But yet not by the side of her father.
Never before have I held her
Nor have I set my eyes upon her.
Though I'm deeply hurt by my own actions,
I still pray for the day we are united.
Seeing every one of my features upon her face
And not even if she could, could she hide it,
Beautiful wavy hair, caramel-colored skin,
With her mother's eyes and cheeks.
I would have done anything
Just to hear her squeak
Roaring with laughter and giggles
And wanting to be held in my arms.
Though I can only have these thoughts,
She is my physical strength behind these bars.
So I'll forever cherish her picture
Until the time we see each other.
And when that day comes,
She'll probably already be a mother.
But never failing will be my desire
To maintain these precious thoughts I think.
For every time I look at my daughter's picture
Is where I gather all my physical strength.

:) Sweet. Hopefully when the time comes for you to get out of there she will be waiting for you with open arms. Keep praying because prayer works.
