My Letter To Dad

Dear Dad,

I’m back home…
I’m here…please come and greet me…
With the warmest hug you haven’t give me…

I’m writing a letter in poetry
Just for you to read…

I’m sitting here next to you…
Writing you this masterpiece

Do you hear my voice as I speak?
I’m stroking your hair gently dad…
Come back home…we’re waiting…

Do you know mother crying?
She said she really missed you…
She want you back home…in her arm again…

Little sister is crying…she missed your warm hug…
Each morning you always give her
Before she go to school…

Do you know we’re here waiting
For you to come home…

And daddy…I cook your favorite food…
I brought your favorite soda…
And snacks too…

Wake up…lets eat…and let me hear you say you love it!

Don’t let my tears form in my eyes..
Don’t leave me linger in pain behind…
I’m hurt, I’m aching, I’m breaking…
Just wishing you to come and smack me behind my head like you use too..


I’m wrapping my arm around your lifeless body
As tears caress my cheek unto your cheek…

Do you feel the kiss I give you on the cheek…
Do you hear words of inspiration whisper in your ear…

Daddy, please come home…
