Daddy

Daddy, you broke my heart-
I'm a little girl on a swing
And I'm waiting for you to come home

Daddy, tuck me in
And sing me a lullaby.
I can't fall asleep
Because I'm crying too loudly
To hear the stars sing.

Daddy, I miss you
And my memories of you
Are like ashes,
Dark and gray and crumbling
Like my soul
Like your body underground.
