In a way it's sweet but in another way it's sad
My parents were divorced when I was really little and I didn't understand why my father left. This poem really told a true feeling. That was exactly what I felt when he left. Thank you for writing this poem. It's amazing.

Why Is Mommy Crying

I watch as mommy cries sitting there all alone
When she falls asleep she cuddles to the phone
I ask why all the tears, why all the sorrow
I then hug her, tell her dad will be back tomorrow
I must say something wrong, she cries even more
Everything I say I make the tears pour
Maybe I don't hug her enough, maybe love I lack
Maybe she's right - daddy is never coming back
