Far Away Dad

A close connection to each other
Valued time is spent each day,
A young boy and his father
Its ment to be this way.

What will happen to this
When the mother decides to go,
 The child is taken away now
New where abouts he dont know.

A father's heart is now shattered
For what is there left to do,
Without his precious son there
His life is meaningless and blue.

Wanting only to be the best ever
He sits in a cell thinking what he had,
Missing his son and new memories
His son is missing more....his dad.

Even the miles between them
Can't take what is in the heart,
Knowing they will soon reunite
Will help them while their apart.

    This is so sad....especially the cell part....mistakes can be valuable lessons if we learn from them....my prayers for you, and your precious family.....always, Christy
