Father, why?

Father, why haven’t you called?
What have I done to deserve this solitude
without your strong presence guiding me through the shadows?
What have I said to chase you away into the nothingness across the sea?
What keeps you from reaching out to one of your daughters?

Father, why haven’t you called?
I can’t remember the sound of your voice anymore,
how your face looks with that grey mustache of yours.
I have forgotten how old you are, how tall you seemed to be,
how protective you were of me.

Father, why haven’t you called?
How long has it been since you’ve gone?
You called every now and then, yet I couldn’t reach you.
Now the calls have stopped and I can’t remember you.
So, why?
What’s keeping you from a simple greeting, a simple “I love you”?
You may have forgotten that you always called me Baby but I am still your daughter.
So, why, Father, why?

Father, why?

Artist's Description

This was what the little child in me was asking a few years back. Needless to say, he still hasn’t called.
