Daddy Come Home

Daddy's been gone.
Gone for so long.
For him I pray.
He joined the core,
Fighting a war,
Somewhere far away.
He promised me he's return.
When the Hanukkah candles burn.
So, here i wait.
The blessings I recite.
By the candle light.
But its getting late.
Daddy come home, stay with me!
Let me hold your hand, let me sit upon your knee!
I see fear, in mommy's eyes.
Every time she cries, she tries to comfort me.
Its scary here at home.
My mind begins to roam.
"Have i lost you?"
I hear the phone,
And mommy's mournful moan.
"It cant be true"
Daddy come home, stay with me!
Let me hold your hand, Let me sit upon your knee!
I see fear in mommy's eyes.
Everytime she cries, she tries to comfort.
"Where has he gone? How will i carry on?
Tell me what can i say? I need to pray..."
"Lord, please hear my plead, send my daddy home to...--"
Whose that i hear? Call my name!
I run into his arms!
Home to me! HE'S ON HIS KNEES!
Home at last! Eyes a glow! 
I thought my daddy died. But now i'm not letting go!

    yes..The Lord Almighty gives back everything..just we have to wait.. your poem is an eyeopener for me since I m a father of two. They really wait for me until I reach home. I literally have wept while reading this poem. An daddy-sick poem... I APPEAL EVERY DAD TO BE HOME AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE. BECAUSE KIDS ARE WAITING FOR YOU. THEY ARE INNOCENT FLOWERS OF GOD'S GARDEN. BE HOME BEFORE THEY FORGET US..!!

    What a wonderful imagery - I had tears in my eyes as I read this - so wonderful there was a happy ending - sadly it doesn't always work out so well:-( Hugs Jan xx 7 xx
