When a parent must leave home, children do no understand all the intricate reasons why, they just want their parents back, and things the way they were.

How Could This Be

©Samantha L. Powell-Gordon

How Could This Be,

Daddy how could this be
Why don't you ever come and see me

Daddy I love with all my heart
Why do you have to tear it apart

Each night I cry BIG tears
But you wouldn't know cause you're never here

Daddy how could this be
Do you do not care or love me

I talk to you on the phone
But it's not the same without you being in my home

Daddy you say I'm your Boy
But all I feel like is I'm your Toy

Please Daddy make things right
So you can be here with me tonight
