I Wish

I wish that I had a Dad
Who cuddled me when I fell
I wish that I had a Dad
Who didn't scream and yell

I wish that I had a Dad
Who took me up to bed
Tucked me in, said goodnight
and kissed me on the head

I wish that I had a Dad
Who took me to the park
Played with me on the swings
Held me close when it got dark

I wish that I had a Dad
who carried me on his shoulder
carry me so very high
until I was much older

But most of all I wish
that my dad hadn't left me
All alone, crying...
And thinking what could be

Why did you leave me Dad
Did I do something wrong
Don't you love me any more
Where have you gone?

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
