Mommy, where's Daddy?

Honey, Daddy left

When, because I didn't see him go

It was around six and you were still asleep

Oh, did he take the red Jeep

Or did he walk

And where did he go?

Did he go to The Library to get a few sips

Or did he suddenly decide to go on a trip

Huh, Mommy, when is Daddy coming back?

Baby girl, Daddy's not coming back

He left

Left?

Left like we left my sweater at Anna's house

Because it was too small

Left like we left Grandma at the nursing home

So there won't be any more falls

Mommy, you mean he's gone?

Yes, baby, he's gone

Okay.
