Jack Perna, Grade 6, Hampden State School
My last memory of you
Takes me back to when I was two
I wish I’d talk to you some day
There’s so much I would do and say
Life has changed very much
Since the day you went away
Tears dropping down from my eyes
Wish you could answer my cries
Soccer is my favourite game
Being striker brings me fame
You know dad, if you saw me play
You would be so proud, this I pray.
Yeah my dad, maybe gone
But mum’s here all along.
I have my whole family too!
Oh dad, I just really miss you!
