You didn't know what had happened. You gave up asking why I was crying, You knew I wouldn't respond to your questions You stared out the window, till the sky darkened and the street lights came on.

Finally I asked you what you were doing.

You are four years old, almost five, and you let me know that you're waiting for your dad to come home. You miss him a lot. You want him to come home already.

He's not coming home.

You ask if he will be home tomorrow, where is he?

Your dad is at the hospital because the doctors want to help him.

You tell me  that you hope he is okay  And tears fill your little eyes.

Too bad he's not.
