"Have you ever once in your life reached out to touch infinity?" -Ellen Hopkins


I spent my time writing a letter
and this morning it was sent
a stamp, some tears and a sliver of hope
I need you here
I need to repair my life
build it with some strength
I've lost so many people
and I need them back
my lifeboat has sailed away
I'm drowning
Tell me that you love me
forgive me for the sins that you don't know about
please help me not disapeer
my will to fight is denigrating slowly
my passion for life becomes more dominant
everyday I pray to find the right road
that leads straight home

This was my cry out to get my biological father back in my life. He never responded to the letter.
