i envy that girl with her father by her side.
i saw this photograph of a man and a girl
a perfect father and daughter photograph
a father hugging his child. it made me smile.

papa,
i could not recall a time you hugged me like that.

maybe you did
while i was sleeping
or while i was too busy watching my favorite tv show…

maybe you wanted to
while i was busy playing with my friends
or after i fell from our bike

or maybe we were just too busy
doing our own stuff before
but i cant remember anymore…

i think you know this already…
i want to hug you after how-long-have-you-been-away years
i want to tell you things that happened while you’re gone
i want to hear your voice
i want to laugh with you again
i want to tell you i love you once more…
