My Sunshine


He is my sunshine,

my only sunshine,

these days have been gray,

since he's been away.


They say he did something bad,

he is still my dad.

I admit I hide my feelings away,

it is very hard to cry every day.


Five years is a long time,

I understand he committed a crime

I know he will be back home someday,

but two thousand miles is a very long way.


Everyone makes mistakes,

this one is making my heartache.

I think of my dad night and day,

just wishing they didn't take my sunshine away.
