A Face Forgotten

 My father is not in sight once again. 
 That's not a surprise once fall begins. The air begins to cool, and the sports begin their rituals. 
 But in the stands I see not the father that which is mine; for he is elsewhere, in his own state of mind.
 The ground starts to freeze, and it's time for the snow and lights; where I once again do not see a face. 
 A face I've almost forgotten is no where in sight.
 The birds begin to chrip, and the sun shines so bright. 
 I don't waste my time looking, searching for that familiar face I've long forgotten.
 When at last he's there, I care the least.

    Very deep poem here. I filled with empathy throughout this poem. If it is a true about your pain, I hope God will fill in that void in you one day my dear.
