When is Daddy Coming Home

The light peeked through her window
A loud thud as her feet hit the floor
It was time for daddy to come home
She had to be there at the door

He would always grab her up
Hold her tight and spin around
With all her might she held his neck
Never wanting him to put her down

But this morning was different
Her mother sat there all alone
She said something bad happened
Your daddy won't be coming home

Quickly she ran to the window
Thinking what is taking him so long
She checked outside until it was dark
Surely her mother had to be wrong

She finally drifted off to sleep
Tonight she left her lamp on
On her night table sat a note
Daddy wake me when you get home

This broke my heart. I can imagine this as well as for animal owners. Having to explain to the pets their owner isn't coming home. They won't understand and still wait everyday

Can relate to what it feels like to be the one left behind of a confused 5 year old little girl. Well written

i can totally relate.
i have some poems like this.
i don't know if you just made this up,
or if it really happend.
but it really happend to our family.
and its hard to explain to the little ones
that their daddys not coming home.
this is good though,
i really like it.
