Going through my youngest son’s writing journal for his classroom, I came across this gem that he wrote:
My Dad’s out of town
I feel alone
I’m feeling really down
He can’t reach the phone
All of a sudden the phone rings
And my heart sings
I pick up the phone
He said, “Only one more day”
And in his voice was a great tone
He said what I wanted him to say
One more time of sleep
And then he’s here to keep
Dads, listen to me: Your kids want you.
For your kids you spell “love” T-I-M-E.
Give them all the time you can. They want you for keeps.
