Daddy?

Rating: 5.0

Daddy, can you hear my cries,
see the tears that stream
down my stained anguish face?

Daddy, can you feel the sorrow
of my heart that yearns for you,
tied in knots, hanging on a thread?

Daddy, would you ever know
that I love you regardless

of your absence in my life?

Frank James Ryan Jr...fjr 17 February 2008

The absence of either parent in a child's life can manifest despondent feelings, that they can take with them into adulthood...However, when there is a ne-plus-ultra type of bond 'tween the child & their other parent...then, all that is positive & good in life becomes more than just a possibility...but in most cases, a reality...Your poem here very gently& nebulously intimates such a scenario....and i like the tone you set from the opening line to its moving conclusion.Stellar penning, young lady! ~ FjcR ~
