wasting away in his room alone
as thought carry him back to a place called home
where has daddy gone?
one could only wish he knew
as the questions pile up the memories are few
on the day he turned seven years old
he waited by the mailbox in the cold
watching from the window
mom feared the broken heart of her son
as he waited for that birthday card
that was never gonna come
its been far to long
where has daddy gone?
and does he miss it?
nothing can replace what we never had
where are you dad?
now the years have been spent and he’s a little older
those days by the mailbox all seem a little colder
he learned its just life when daddy won’t stay
but he promised himself he’d be a better father someday
he takes a step outside and reaches to the sky
he’s touched by his father for the very first time
he breathes his new life as the sun disappears
returning tomorrow to burn away his fears
reaching to the sky...
holding his head high...
