No Father

Five years old,

She only knows.

What she is told.

Where is daddy?

Why isn't he here?

My brother is near. 

Mommy is the only one,

Now Mommy has a son.

A hole in his heart.

Instead of hers.

He had to pay the price,

For the fuss and fight.

"Hi daddy"

"I Love You"

"Kiss your grandparents"

"Daddy don't smoke"

"Don't tell daddy what to do"

"Take care of my kids"

Is the last thing.

That we heard.
