Daddy's Letter

Mommy, could you help me write a letter to my dad? There's some things I need to ask him, things, that make me feel real sad Like, why all the sudden did he stop coming home? and when he's not with us, tell him, I get worried he's alone Ask, how come, you do the things he used to help me with, and when he visits next time, is he gonna bring another gift? I need to know, if I'm still his, or just yours, Mommy... I always thought you were both mine, not just one at a time Daddy, can you answer these questions and get them off my mind? My little sister started walkin' today. I can't wait until she's big enough to play. I try my best to teach her things and help her when I can... Mommy always calls me, her "little man" Being around girls all day isn't too much fun at all So, when I pray to God each night I ask for you, to come play ball I wonder, did I do something wrong? Something you didn't like? If you come home, I promise, to try and do things right... Cause', I really miss you being gone and now I feel, a little scared at night Mommy, just one more thing, before you finish my letter... Ask him, if, I'll always be missing him or when, my heart will start feelin' better Oh! and say -- Daddy, when you come and visit me, you can sleep in my bed Then, you and me can talk about all the things I haven't said Love, Blake Thank you, Mommy
