    The boy walked along the ocean shore . . . trying
    not to stray. He looked up to his father saying,
    "Dad, I want to play."

    His father looked upon him, with love showing in his
    eyes. "Do what you want to, my son . . . but do not
    leave my side."

    "I would never leave you Daddy, I love you way too
    much." But the boy took a step away, out of his
    father's range of touch.

    He walked through the surf, the waves tickling one
    toe. "If I take one more step in . . ." he thought,
    "Father will never know."

    His father called out to him, "Son, to me remain
    true!" The boy thought with glee . . . "At the
    moment I don't need you!"

    His father felt a sadness, but he held his tongue.
    Sometimes lessons need to be learned . . . even when
    so young.

    The boy stepped out a little further . . . the water
    covering his waist. His father spoke with urgency .
    . . his father spoke with haste.

    "My son, come back to me," he said, "The day is
    almost done!" "Not yet, Dad," the boy yelled, "I'm
    having too much fun!"

    But the boy did not have his father's insight so he
    could not yet tell, The tide was coming in fast . .
    . there would be no time to yell.

    "Father!" he tried to scream, as the water covered
    his head. "I need you now, Daddy!" was what the boy
    had said.

    And in a single instant his father was by his side.
    "I thought you left me, Daddy . . . I thought you
    went to hide."

    The father looked upon his son . . . a tear
    streaming down his cheek. The boy looked upon his
    father . . . and cried the sobs of the meek.

    "I would never leave you son . . . for I love you
    just the same." "I was only waiting . . . for you to
    call upon my name."
