A poem about how much a son wants his Father to love him.

Where are you Dad?

I wish you could love me like I want to be loved by you.

I wish we could talk like two friends and I could tell you everything that's new.

Wishes, wishes, I have a pocket full of them now.

Do you even care that I still love you somehow?

Was I a mistake?  Did you even want me?

Did you really just want to be free?

You missed the big events in my life.

Someday, I will have a wife.

I hope I have a son, he will have a Father and Mother.

I will hold him and love him like no other.

When I look in his eyes, I will always see,

his love for me that will always be.

I know I will never be like you.

You hurt me too much by the things you don't do.

I don't know what happened that made you this way,

but it's not my fault, I'll be okay.

I will still love you cause your my Dad,

but you will forever make me sad,

sad about the Dad I never had.

I'm sad about the opportunities that you didn't take,

to love me, and be my Dad for our sake.

When you are old and feeble and all alone,

with no one to love you, you will moan,

"Where is my son?  He should be here!"

I won't be around and you will see,

how much it hurts that you didn't love me.
