A little tear runs down a chubby cheek
He hasnít heard her voice in close to a week
A frown and sniffle, that sadness in his eyes
It hurts him so deep, donít she realize?

We had our problems that much is true
We grew apart, what was a man to do?
But why did she leave this little man?
Itís so much more than I can stand

As I hold him and look in his eyes
I can almost see what heís thinking

Why donít Mama love me no more?
Why isnít she ever here with me?
Does she have another little man?
I still care for her, canít she see?
Daddy, I miss my Mama so bad
Whenís she going to be with me?
Whatíd I do to make her go away?
Itís always just her, no more ďweĒ
Daddy, I still miss my Mama

Now me, Iím doing the best I can
To show him how to be a man
Sometimes he needs a softer touch
For her that must not mean too much

Same excuses, same old lies
One day heís going to recognize
Mama wasnít working all the time
Then her ďfreedomĒ wonít be worth a dime
When she hearsÖ

Why donít Mama love me no more?
Why isnít she ever here with me?
Does she have another little man?
I still care for her, canít she see?
Daddy, I miss my Mama so bad
Whenís she going to be with me?
Whatíd I do to make her go away?
Itís always her, no more ďweĒ
Daddy, I still miss my Mama

This poem was very touching and so sad.  It is so hard on children, I wish they didn't have to go through such emotional stress.

Thankyou for sharing.

How horrible for your son--and for you to watch him suffer with these feelings of abandonment. I don't know the whole story, but I do know one thing, I'm putting your son in my prayers tonight!

So sad, this made me cry. You have touched my heart deeply with this poem. I could not even begin to imagine leaving my child behind and just forgetting that I ever had a child. You and your little man are in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless you both.
