I wished for his kiss on my neck.

I knew he wished for my touch on his chest.

But if I let it go on any longer someone would have found out.

And we would have gotten in trouble,

But I knew it would heap up on the double.

When I took a test and it came up positive.

I gasp at the thought of it.

When I told him he said he had to leave,

He left me with his baby.

I wish to this day,

He come back today.

But as I waited months went by,

My stomach looked like it could fly.

I sat there and watched it progress,

I was never able to wear my favorite sundress.

Finally the day came where I went in labor,

and who wasn't there to give me a favor?

The father of little Nathan.

And when little Nathan asks where his daddy is I have to lie and say that daddy is away.

He gives me a look of when will he come back?

I look away with grief and a lack,

Of what could have been a great family value.

But instead hurt the mother of a lot of heart value.

We wish for little Nathans daddy,

Do you know where he is?
