I Want My Dad
If you were here,
There would be lights strung
Around the house.
There would be a fire in the fireplace,
Stories about some gallant mouse.
I can hear mom crying at night.
Even when she tries to hide her tears.
I can place the features of your face.
I remember you greatest fears.
Mom took me to the mall one day.
Outside the sky was a light blue,
Inside the mood was gray.
Santa smiled through his beard,
He has so happy… so glad.
He asked me what I wanted.
I answered "I want my dad"
Not my best work… but I like it.
