This is may favorite out of all the one's I've written in the past month or so. It's about my dad. He moved from Quebec (where I was living at the time) to Texas when I was about 12. Hope you like it.

For my tenth birthday you gave
me a room, full of balloons
when all I wanted was a hug.
My 16th year was celebrated
with a limo full of friends
when I just wanted you to be there.
I got a Siamese kitten
instead of a moment of your time.
My own computer
when I just wanted you to stay-
promise you wouldn't leave me.
Instead, I got a computer,
and you never came home.
