"Pictures may say 1,000 words, but that just compliments the ones that write them."

Can you call me?
Call me today, tomorrow,
Maybe even the next.
Tell me how much you’ve worked,
How you miss and love me more than that.
Talk to mom and apologize,
Pretend you're close enough to catch her tears.
Pretending is all you can do.
But until the day you call me,
Until the day you win your trial,
Dad, I love you.

The author's comments:
I wrote this for my best friend who has been going through a hard time with her father being in jail since before she was born. She always talks about the possibility of him calling, and I thought this would help her forgive and even forget.
