Sydney

Sydney my son
where have you gone?
I’ve seen all your pictures
I don’t know your mom

We have the same eyes
squinty hazel green
Your ears as big as mine
You look just like me

Sydney my son
where have you gone?
I’ve seen all your pictures
it’s been so long

When you laugh
do you smile like me?
When you are sad
do you hide like me?
Sydney my son
do you write like me?

Do you feel any different
from your brother and your dad?
Sydney don’t cry… it’s not so bad

Sydney my son
Life can be confusing
I thought of you daily
and still you never knew me

April the first
is the day of your birth
I guess I was fooled
because the trick was the worst

To not know about my son
until it’s been too long
to call or say anything
before I’m dead and gone

Sydney my son
I don’t know you
but I love you
You are a part of me
If I ever had advice
“let your heart be free”

Sydney my son
where have you gone?
I’ve seen all your pictures
Damn, it’s been too long
