A Hero, My Friend
By E.J. Tung
Genre: Poetry Level: Elementary K-3
Year: 2005 Category: Bell Benton Memorial Poetry Award

He helps in Thailand,
I miss our walks and our games,
Dad, come home soon, please.

I see dads and kids,
They are playing in the sun,
My heart is crying.

I am joyful now,
Dad is back home safe and
The sun shines on us.
