Children so Empty

February 28, 2008
By Amanda Chilton, Cincinnati, OH

Dad wanted his time
Just maybe some of his love
To tell his kids stories
Of times when he was young
From little to now big
He still yearned for something
July and Family
Grandpa passed without a goodbye
Now no dad at all
To try to love me
Two years later
Children of my own
To love and to care
And to always be there
He has love of his own
A boy and a girl
To change life’s role
Never will he make us feel
The pain…He felt...As a child.
