A sad Dad's poem...
This is a beautiful poem. There is an appeal from a Zimbabwean
couple at the bottom of message, not asking for anything more
than that you hand the poem on.
The husband wrote the poem.




TO MY CHILD


Just for this morning, I am going to


                                             
smile when I see your face and laugh

when I feel like crying.


Just for this morning, I will let you


                                               
choose what you want to wear,

and smile and say how perfect it is.

Just for this morning, I am going to step

over the laundry and pick you up and take you to

the park to play..


Just for this morning, I will leave the

dishes in the sink, and let you teach me how to put

that puzzle of yours together.


Just for this afternoon, I will unplug


                               
the telephone and keep the computer off, and sit with

                                       
you in the backyard and blow bubbles.

                                       
Just for this afternoon, I will not yell

once, not even a tiny grumble when you scream and

whine for the ice cream truck, and I will buy you one


                                                     
if he comes by.

                                         
Just for this afternoon, I won't worry

about what you are going to be when you grow up, or


                               
second guess every decision I have made where you are

                                                       
concerned..

Just for this afternoon, I will let you

help me bake cookies, and I won't stand over you

trying to fix them.


Just for this afternoon, I will take us

to McDonald's and buy us both a Happy Meal so you can

have both toys.


                                           
Just for this evening, I will hold you in

                                 
my arms and tell you a story about how you were

born and how much I love you.


Just for this evening, I will let you


                                             
splash in the tub and not get angry.

Just for this evening, I will let you

stay up late while we sit on the porch and count all the stars.

Just for this evening, I will snuggle

beside you for hours, and miss my favourite TV shows.

Just for this evening when I run my

finger through your hair as you pray, I will simply be

grateful that God has given me the greatest gift ever given.

I will think about the mothers and

fathers who are searching for their missing children, the

mothers and fathers who are visiting their children's

graves instead of their bedrooms.. The mothers

and fathers who are in hospital rooms


                               
watching their children suffer senselessly and screaming

inside that little body


And when I kiss you goodnight I will hold


you a little tighter, a little longer. It is then,

that I will thank God for you, and ask him for


nothing, except one more day.............




Hi! I am a 29-year-old father. My wife and I have had a wonderful life together. God blessed us with a child too. Our daughter's name is Rachel and she is 10
  months  old. Not long ago did the doctors detect brain cancer in her little body.  

There is only one way to save her and that is an operation. Sadly we don't have the money for the operation. AOL and Zdnet (in Zimbabwe ) have agreed to help us.
 

The only way they can help is this: If you send this email to other people< BR>AOL will track this email and count how many people get it. Every person that opens this email and sends it to at least 3 people will give us 32c. (in Zimbabwe dollars) Please help us.
