Long Distance Daddy


long distance daddy,
please come home
long distance daddy,
i'm here all alone.
long distance daddy
mommy's getting mad
she's starting to say
you're just a deadbeat dad
long distance daddy
are you going to watch me play
or sit and do work all day
long distance daddy
you're so far away
you've missed so many christmas'
and you never take a holiday
...

long distance daddy
i hope you catch word
your little girls growing up without you
she's beginning to loose faith in you too
long distance daddy
she's not gonna cry
she's just going to put down your picture,
and say goodbye.


(just stating a couple of facts about my dad.)

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
