To my son for whom these words I write, Daddy’s missing you every day, every night.
Thinking of all the days that I’ve lost. Birthdays, Holidays, balls being tossed.
Hoping to one day explain to you why, Daddy’s been away instead of by your side.
It’s no fault of your own, this one is on me. One day when you’re older, you will see.
Miles away, I miss you so much! Looking forward to visits, phone calls and such.
Hearing your voice looking into your eyes, what a pleasure it is, it’s always a surprise.
You’re my greatest achievement son, it’s easy to see. Make the right choices, don’t be like me.
Until I’m finally with you on that magical day, know you’re always with me son, in my heart to stay.
