Fatherless Boy


Published: February 2006

All around they stood
with tears in their eyes,
the last thing they could do
was say their last goodbyes.
The little boy was crying,
he was but only six.
He couldn't understand
what he could not fix.
Did you lose your Papa?
The three year old said.
The little boy replied,
Yes, I think he's dead.
As they wiped their tears
and found their toys,
reality went away,
they were back to being boys.
Everyone watched,
some cried more tears,
A fatherless boy
was one of their greatest fears.
You can never replace
a dad once he's gone.
Why did God do this?
It seems so terribly wrong.
If there is a point to this,
I hope it comes out,
because no one should grow up
wondering what life is about?
