Heaven's Just Too Far - Poem by Shirley Ann Aquino

Today was my special day…
But why he wasn’t here today?
I’m sad to face this day alone,
For I know how much he loves me so…
I long for a father’s love
A dad I never sees,
A dad who never calls…
I know he couldn’t be here,
Because he lives so far away…
And though I can’t see him
I’m not standing here alone
Cause my daddy’s always with me
Even though we are apart
He’ll forever be in my heart…
I love my daddy very much.
He’s my shining star!
And if he could, he’d be here,
But heaven’s just too far
I wish I could go that far
To be with him for my birthday….
