Why You?

By Kathie R.

Why You
Why did you have to go
When I needed you the most?
Why did you do what you did
And die at such a young age
You knew as my father you should have changed
You should have taken care of me
But know it can't be changed
You left me here to mourn your death.
On fathers day everyone talks of what they give their fathers
And all I can give is a fresh shed of tears
Pictures of you are not enough
I need your love
Every night I dream of the last day I saw you
And here the last words you said to me
"I'll be back soon "you said
Its been 6 long years and I still am waiting
Why father
When I need you the most
