A letter from a 4-year-old to her daddy

Girl2 showed me her writing board yesterday. She had written a few strings of letters that spelled nothing really. To her, though, it was a letter for Daddy. She translated for me. Initially, it just said, "I want you to come home," but when I told her I'd take a picture of her with her letter to send to Daddy, she gave me the director's cut. I damn near wanted to cry when she told me what it was supposed to say:

“I want you, but you’re in the desert. I just need you, but you’re gone. I want you to come home.”
