Fathers’ Day Lament Too

June 20, 2012
Tom Baideme - June 2010 , Westfield Republican / Mayville Sentinel News

Fifty-eight and a week or so

Didn't get the gift I sought

To have my sons on Father's day

At church with me, but came to naught

No appears or trace or call

No response from them at all

One daughter there was her hope too

But odds were that they won't come through

But even after still no sign

I thought someone would take the time

To show up and at least get some eats

Partake of all the Fathers' Day treats

Nor after that when we went for brunch

With my daughter seine of son

Who went to spend the day with Dad

Instead a friend with child fills the fun

All afternoon I wait in shade

Thinking of the plans we made

Sat there even after dark

Didn't cruise to bar or park

Almost bed time, waited to eat

Thought maybe some one would bring some treat

Daughter stops to show the grandson off

Well, it was something, still wasn't near enough
