|A poem about growing up without a father.|
Do you remember the time you loved and cherished me; a brand new body you helped to bring into this world? When you rocked me and sung lullabies; tickled my toes and kissed me goodnight? Neither do I. Do you remember when you saw me take that first step? Or when you taught me how to play the piano like you? Or, when I went to kindergarten, did you cry when you realized you had lost your baby? I didnít think so. Do you remember helping me pull out my first loose tooth? Or when you signed me up for the Sugar Babies to play Pee Wee baseball? When I got my first hit and instead of running to first base, ran to second? Probably not. How about my first day of high school? Or Homecoming? Maybe my senior prom? My first broken heart? Getting my driverís license and buying my Chevy Monza? Or when I graduated from high school? No, you most likely donít. Do you remember when you left me at eight months old, only to return eleven years later, with only an apology and a want to take on the responsibility a father should always have had for his child? So do I. Tweet
