Where is he now?
How can this be?
Everything was so good when I wasabout three.
He came back years later.
Then he left again soon.
The one month I hate has to be June.
All the laughs from happiness, fathers with sons.
While I play at the park saying I don’t have one.
Sometimes I just say I blame myself.
I’m the real reason he packed up and left,
She says it’s not my fault and that he loves you.
No calls or gifts, kind of hard to believe it’s true.
So far gone he left with no shame.
I don’t think of it much so I start over like a game.
Sometimes I wonder where he is.
Probably back in St. Louis with some other kids.
I smile and laugh when I’m asked for my dad.
Even though he left it shouldn’t make me sad.
I’m kind of confused.
Why did he leave?
Was it me, my mom, life wasn’t just an ease?
We had problems but it all resolved into peace.
So I’m left to say so far gone, where is he?
