Wish List
Author: Ben Franklin


An empty void,
not having daddy at home on a permanent basis
still makes me Annoyed,

Not having him at home to ask me how my day was
at work,
not having him there to tell him about Ben who is a major
not having him there to give me a cuddle when my
throat hurts.

If Im truly honest,
The person your with now is not my cup of tea,
If Im truly honest I feel you have been stolen from
my brother
and me.

Christmas is the hardest time
Especially now grandma is also gone,
I start to think about all the good times
I've missed.....I dont want a toy from santa,
My Daddy back at home is at the top of my
Wish List.

Well done Ben. This really hit a nerve with me.
