DEAR DADDY'S BOSS

DEAR DADDY'S BOSS

A Poem by Poeticme
"

A LETTER I WROTE FROM THE PROSPECTIVE OF A CHILD,I AM SURE THERE ARE ALOT OF MISSED MOMMY'S AND DADDY'S OUT THERE.AND THIS IS TO YOU........THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU GIVE AND GIVE UP,FOR OUR COUNTRY.

"

DEAR  DADDY'S BOSS

 

      CAN YOU BRING MY DADDY HOME,BECAUSE HE'S BEEN GONE FAR TOO LONG,AND MOMMY AND ME ARE ALL ALONE.WHY DID HE HAVE TO GO,AND WHY COULD'NT HE JUST STAY,YOU SENT HIM ACROSS THE OCEAN SO FAR AWAY.I MISS HIM AT NIGHT WHEN IT'S TIME FOR BED,AND I MISS HIM LAYING WITH ME AND RUBBING MY HEAD.

MY DADDY IS MY HERO,AND I MISS HIM SO,DON'T YOU THINK IT'S YOUR TURN,TO PACK UP AND GO.MY MOMMY CRIES ALOT,AND I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO SAY,AND SHE SITS BY THE PHONE ALLNIGHT AND DAY.I DON'T HAVE MUCH,BUT YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL,IF YOU WOULD GET ON THE PHONE AND MAKE THE CALL.TELL MY DADDY ITS TIME TO COME BACK TO US,SO MOMMY CAN SMILE AGAIN AS SHE WALKS ME TO THE BUS.

I WILL TELL EVERYONE THAT YOU ARE THE BEST,IF YOU BRING MY DADDY HOME,SO HE CAN GET SOME REST.HE NEEDS TO BE HOME,SO HE CAN GO TO MY GAME,AND IF HE'S NOT HERE IN TIME,YOU WILL BE TO BLAME.

MY BIRTHDAY WAS LAST WEEK,AND MOMMY AND I MADE A CAKE,BUT,IT WAS NOT LIKE THAT ONE,MY DADDY USE TO MAKE.AND HE MISSED SCHOOL STARTING,AND I WAS SO AFRAID,BECAUSE HE ALWAYS WALKED ME TO MY NEW GRADE.

SO I WILL TELL MOMMY THERES NO NEED TO CRY ANYMORE,BECAUSE THAT MAN WHO LIVES IN THAT BIG WHITE HOUSE,IS BRINGING DADDY TO OUR DOOR.YOU CAN COME OVER,AND I WILL GIVE YOU A KISS,FOR BRINGING ME BACK MY DADDY,SO MY LIFE HE DON'T MISS.

 

 

             THANK YOU.

'DEAR DADDY'S BOSS - CAN YOU BRING MY DADDY HOME,BECAUSE HE'S BEEN GONE FAR TOO LONG,AND MOMMY AND ME ARE ALL ALON.. 'E

You have me near standing up, needing to dash find the box of tissues, now, right now. These words are full of childish sadness, of need, of innocence. They are so right in tone (phrasing), BUT so wrong in their needing to be written.

Youv've run meanings and sentences into each other, which in turn, makes the whole even more meaningful, even more vital. God knows that man in the white house needs to sit up and take notice.

This sure does pull at the heart, wow.
I think you wrote this very well through the eyes of a child. Well done.

Oh this is just heart breaking. I know those words exactly, its a rough life for those who serve, but it all pays out in the end, just keep pushing and know you will continue on. Thank you for this

Sorry didn't mean to make you sad, but glad you enjoyed it
That's something we neglect. The feelings of the child while he awaits his father to be with him. You've portrayed this feeling really well. I liked reading this piece. And quite a good flow too :)
