WHY WOULD FATHERS GO


Oh! I forgot You need someone to throw you up
Oh! I thought you are not lonely
Oh! Y would they call every male daddy
Oh! I remember he was Gone.

How could somebody be so wicked?
Too leave their children all alone,
Without a father in their lifes,
Too teach them how to ride their bike,

Too stand by them day and night,
Tell them how beautiful they look, then say goodnight,
Too pick them up,
Then kiss their cheek,
Then whisper I love you, in their ear,

Instead of watching his children grow,
Be with a lady, so young, yet cold,
Tell her she is beautiful, then say goodnight,
Whisper I love you, in her ear,

Someday I may understand,
How a father can just go,
Leaving his children to grow,
Without a father in their lives,
To teach them wrong and right,

To leave the mother, alone in pain,
And struggle to raise the kids alone,
Without a lover in her life,
Always choosing to put her kids first,
Hiding the pain she feels,
Coming home from a day at work,
To a restless night,

Constantly questioning why God chose this to happen to her,
Then reminded, by her lovely kids,
That they are loved,
And every day before she says goodnight

Her kids looks @her and admire the beauty
The beauty father refuse to cee
The Eldest approach her back to zip her cloths
She said to her Mum you are beautiful

You need to cee, she s really a beauty,
Reminds them how much she does loves them,
Kisses their cheek,
Then blows out the light.

Dedicate this to those whose father had left them to their mums care since childhood
