Part Time Dad - Poem by The4amPoet ....

I'm sorry son i did'nt think
that you would'nt be safe
or your clothes would stink
and i'm sorry mate for being dumb
i chose a drunk to be your mum
So Just in case
i dont see your face
or hear your voice again
i wrote these words for you to read
to try and numb the pain
i never thought when we lost touch
that it would cut or hurt this much
and it never even crossed my mind
that she would poison then untwine
the bonds we've made the fun we had
i will always be your Dad
when you grow up and your a man
i hope you'll understand
the reason that i was'nt there
is because my love was banned
