He is Never Coming Back



My father is gone.
He is never coming back.

Is that why I hate to see her with her father?
Her father was gone.
But he came back.

I would do anything to hug my father the way she hugs hers.

It's not like I could just get another father.
He wasn't an object.
He was a beautiful, irreplaceable human being.

Why did he have to go?
Is it something I did wrong?
Was this karma coming for me?

I just want my father back.
That's all.
