He Drove Away

by In All Our Years

on a summer day.
his children free.
he drove away.

one with a book.
one with his toys.
they did not look.
they were just boys.

as time went on.
days into years.
their Daddy gone.
so many tears.

and as they grew.
and went on their own.
they made their home.
each not alone.

and till this day.
they remember back when.
what happened to them.
what became of him?
