A Childhood Wish

September 25, 2008
By Kaytlyn Smolen, Johnstown, PA

As a child
Many wish for things
ponies or puppies
Just to name a few
I had no desire for these
My wish?
A dad

When this wish
became a reality
I was ecstatic

Throughout the years
You
Were there for me
You
Supported me
You
Became my best friend

Suddenly
this
was all forced to end

It then hit me
How close we really were
Making this separation even harder

Even now
I deny
how much it pains me

As Much
as I desire to
I can’t say
“I miss you”
Without
tears blurring my vision

Regardless
of what is said
You’re my Dad
And I love you
