This was very well written. At first I was under the impression that it was from the father's perspective. The third and last line put that into consideration. Now I believe it is from a third person's view or maybe the child's? anyway, The stark reality and simplicity was breath-taking.

This poem was consise, yet was executed perfectly. It leaves you hanging with that one unanswered question, feeling the sympathy for the person in the poem - especially the child who is asking for their father. I like it. Very well done!
