Poetry from within

(Absent) Father's Day

Every year on father's day

I try to hide myself away

Whilst others have a day of fun

I'm left to be the lonely one

No happy father holding me

Happy as a dad should be

No card or present do I buy

Just me, alone, having a cry

Wishing once that I just had

The chance to hold and love my dad

But this I know will never be

My dad no longer cares for me

He doesn't want to be with us

Control his anger or discuss

How we could be a family

And once again show love to me
