Even though he became a stranger
He was once the love of my life
& my heart never forgot him.
I always remember running into his arms before he could even get his other foot through the door.
He would always make me laugh
I was the happiest little girl.
Days then became weeks
Weeks became months
Months became years
I no longer expected him to come home
He's face, he's voice & the warmth of his arms soon became just a sacred memory
A memory I had planned to recapture
But his flesh turned into dust & all that is left behind is buried bones
My heart's small request to see my father again has been ripped apart
Coz now his gone again, but this time forever...
