Oh, dear Father, I miss you so,
But how can I let you know?
I know you worry about how I am.
I’d love to write you a telegram.
I hear you, child, and how you have cried,
to reach out to him and how you tried.
All you want is for him to know
that you are well and how you have grown.
Give me your message, and I will go
to your father so he will know.
