Dad Don't Leave

Excellence Award in the 'Write Here Write Now 2017' competition

I watch from the shadows where I hide.
Circling in sadness,
Trying not to cry.
I hear the jingle of his keys.
My eyes water in sadness,
as he leaves.
"Dad I love you and goodbye..."
My lips whisper,
as my heart dies.
You come and go with such ease
Can't you see I need you...
