My One Hit Wonder..by Michael

It was a nasty divorceas she got custody of their twelve year old daughter. The ex wife moved out ofstate and his rights to visitation abruptly came to an end. The disappearanceof his former wife didn't matter to him, but the daughter did. Dad missed herhigh school graduation and the years before where mom had taken away hisrelationship with the only person he really cared about. The now fifty fiveyear old father thought about old times and remembered his daughters passionfor music and singing. From another state she became a well known singer andher song was just a one hit wonder. A year of fame and fortune that faded awaysoon afterwards. The last concert was back in a city where she used to live.Dad was there but not noticed as there were so many faces in the crowd too farfor her to see. He managed to get a few feet away from the stage and threw ared rose which landed by her feet. She picked it up and read a short card thatwas attached to it. "Daddy still loves you", it read. His daughterreached out her hand as held it. The father was pulled up and helped onto thestage. With the microphone in one hand, and the other around her fathersshoulder, she told the entire crowd who he was. It was her choice to move inwith a dad that wanted to catch up on old times. There was a standing ovationas her story was told. Mom was prosecuted for illegally moving withoutnotifying the father. A one hit wonder was not only a song, but a time in theirlives when they finally got together once again. He tucked his daughterin one night in the spare bedroom just like old times. She whispered inhis ear, "my one hit wonder"....
