'the Old Way'

'the Old Way'
Today I closed my laptop,
Today I set down my cell,
Today I pulled out a piece of paper,
Today I pulled the cap off a pen,
Today I did it 'the Old Way',
Today I wrote a two page piece you have yet to see,
Yesterday I didn't write a bloody thing,
Well tomorrow's not here,
So just like you I'll have to wait & see,
Today, I really missed my kids. \,;/zjz.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Everyday will never be the same,
When being an everyday dad has been taken away,
Everyday i sit and wonder,
Does she appreciate being able to still watch, live & witness all those little things that I no longer get to see,
I didn't just miss my kids today,
I miss them everyday.
