A PLEA TO OUR FATHERS
Fathers, why won't you get it?
Why won't you understand?
That after becoming a father you just have to stand.
In the eyes of a child, especially a boy, you are their heroes,
their angels, you are their superstars.
They don't get why you can't be there,
They don't understand why you are never near.
Mothers are left to mop up all the heavy tears,
When your child wakes up and realizes you will never be there.
This fathers may take many years but then, your trust may take an
eternity to regain.
So please, I plea, get that to a child you are everything they need.
They will never understand why you can't be there.
So please, stop the quitting and just be there.
