Hello my son
I wonder how you have been
Not many news come from outside
In this cell that I'm in

But I'm hoping
That you have been fine
Can't recall since I last saw you
It's impossible to keep track of time

Despite all that I've sent you
There's been no reply to my letters
Are you ashamed of your father?
Is it because I'm chained by these fetters?

I miss you, son
I miss your sisters and your brother
I've been missing all the little things
Like waking up each morning to the smile of your mother

The news did reach me, though
That you're about to have a daughter
I hope you've grown as a better man than me
Its the only wish I have as your father

Do what I couldn't
And take care of your family
Be a better man than me
And do everything I knew that you could be

Son, I'm not sure if you still read my letters
Or If they're just thrown away
But in the chance that you're still reading
There is something that I just need to say

My time has already come
That I must tell you goodbye
I want to ask your forgiveness
Before Its my time to die

So if you can forgive me
Please reply to this letter
Even if I have to meet my maker
This will make everything better
New poem
