Daddy Come Home
 

To hold infinity in the palm of

your hand is shaking and trembling badly.

Looking death in the eyes and praying that

they won't take him away or hurt my dad.

I know he did bad but why is he gone?

I miss my dad now and wish he was here.

Dead is what my dad will be I hear so

I have lost hope in everything, the world

is cruel and unkind to me and my dad.

Come home dad, please, I really need my dad.
