Absence is a term I've been turning over a lot,
trying to understand what about me is not
adequate enough to earn an appearance by you.
Your absence has left me feeling quite blue.
Absence is a feeling that is tearing
You left when I was so small,
that your absence left doom for me to befall.
Absence is something that a father should never be.
Especially when my mother told me that you loved me.
Why did you have to go?
Your absence has made me miss you so.
Absence rolls around in my mind,
to it I wish I could be blind.
But sadly, I'm alone.
From the absence I've always known.
