    WELCOME HOME

    Dad left home some 24 months ago
    With the intent of serving the country
    A brave man with good intentions
    "Dear Dad,"
    That was the prefix to our conversations
    Until I wrote and didn't get a reply
    Mum got fidgety
    I'd always catch her sobbing
    Finally, I heard they'd be coming home
    Mum watched me make a placard with Dad's favourite color
    I wore my best dress
    Everyday, for five days
    Waiting...
    Going to the airport.
    I saw other Dads
    But, not mine.
    I guess he doesn't like home too.
