Looking through his old pictures
Him as a child
His dad was at an early age
He wishes for more then just an image
Closing his eyes
Trying to picture his dad
Where is his dad now?
Wishing to see beyond the face
A tear falls unto the picture
Running down unto his lap
He longs for more then 
just a word upon a letter
His dad has written him
Longing for his fathers existence
For the relationship he wished he had
He awaits for the next letter
He never receives
Falling upon his knees
Tears Crawling down his face
Wanting to know his father better

    Kurt, is it about you? I see it's written in the third person. That is a good way to do it too. I really feel for this person. I too do not really know my dad. Congrats on your win.

    Kurt, well told, there are many of us that, unfortunately never got to really know our Dads--mine Died when I was 19.
