Where Are You Dad?? Are You Coming Home?


Published by Family Friend Poems July 2006 with permission of the Author.

Where is my dad? Where could he be?
Sometimes, I feel like he's hiding from me.
Is he alive or is he dead?
Sometimes, I wonder what's going though his head.
Does he love me? Does he care?
Does he miss the moments we used to share?
I miss my dad and I don't know what to believe,
I hear he's drunk, I hear he's a thief.
There's a part of me that loves him and a part of me that cares,
But then, I have doubts 'cause he's never there.
Is he happy? Or is he sad?
Was it worth it to lose everything he had?
Sometimes I wonder, does he even care,
Does he make an effort? Does he even know I'm there?
Are you wealthy? Or are you poor?
Am I still the child you used to adore?
For now I think back to the memories we've had,
But sometimes, I kinda' wonder, do I still have a dad?

Dedicated to:  Dad, thanks for coming back into my life.
                        I now feel complete.

I can relate to this poem a lot. My dad and mom got divorced when I was six and I don't see him a lot any more. I always think what would it be like if he was still here, is he still alive, does he really care anymore, did he lose his job and not say anything, what are you thinking. So this poem means a lot cause not all families go though this.
