No Phone Call Received

 Is it difficult to pick up the phone and call?

Or what about the effort of a text instead,

The road of life is a very long haul and someday my sons I will be dead.

Why my sons was no phone called received,

For Father’s day was 2 days ago,

For I know you are busy, but I just cannot let go.

The divorce came at your tender young age,

And much of my time was spent off stage.

But I was there in more ways than you will ever know,

And tried to be a good dad,

So a simple phone call would make me glad.

Why do I make it all about me?

It is just I love you and I want you to see.

As a dad that feels a failure and wants to be a winner

Please call me to say ‘hi’, this will make me a grinner.

Sure there are times I receive the call and text,

But not received on my day, is perplex.

You call when you need to communicate something to me,

And I listen for I am excited with glee.

Why do I make it all about me?

It is because I love you and I want you to see.

I cried after my special day when no phone call was received,

And I think and I prey, the day that I die,

They could have called me on my special day,

For I am your father and not a bad guy.

Why do I make it all about me?

It is because I love you and I want you to see.

I hoped things had changed and really believed,

But instead I cried because No Phone Call Received.
