Another Day

By QueenieJ Mack
Another Day
Today is just
Another day.
So full of hope,
Filled with dismay.

I hear your voice,
I start to cry.
Each day you grow,
And by and by.

A kick, a roll,
I know you're there.
A time of peace,
Trapped by despair.

With so much love,
It's still so hard.
I want so much,
To not impart.

I know your name,
It's always been,
A name WE chose,
He can't pretend.

But with his haste,
He turns to go.
And with this child,
I fall so low.

I'm left alone.
There's no deny.
He's gone away.
I wonder why.

But every night
I take a walk.
I sing and read,
And then we talk.

I dream most nights,
You're in my arms.
You search my eyes
With all your charms.

Then day by day,
My dream comes true.
I hold you close,
It's really you.

He hears the news,
A call in jest.
His only words,
'Wish her my best.

My life is changed
Just by your smile.
Although I'm tired,
It's all worthwhile.

You eat and sleep,
You sleep and cry.
Each day you grow,
And by and by....

You turn into
A handsome boy.
You fill my heart
And bring me joy.

Then, oh, too soon,
You start to ask.
'Who is my Dad?'
I know this task.

I look for him,
And then I find,
The man who left
Us both behind.

He wants to see,
His guilt's a show,
As visits pass,
Again, I know.

He leaves once more,
Always his way.
Why did I think
He'd ever stay?

I watch your eyes,
They are so sad.
With every word,
'My Dad is bad!'

Then week by week
Your anger grows.
You hardly speak
But it still shows.

I wish I'd known.
I wish he cared.
And all your pain
Could have been spared.

Someday you'll know
All that's to know.
And then you'll let
Him finally go.

Always watching,
A precious lad,
An eager son,
Who wanted 'Dad.'

But life moves on
With faded whys.
Each day you grow,
And by and by '..
