The wrong you’ve done

It’s rough like the trust

You’ve put in us

You did it.

You left again.

Why come?

If you’ll go

Remember those times

That I wrote you

You were locked away

In a dirty,dark cell

But, my letters were light

You never really listened

But, I talked and talked

Just yapping away

It’s all over now

All I can do is remember

So, why not?

Remember when……

You used to call me
Daddy’s Princess


The author's comments:

The pain of my father being away inspired me to write this poem. The fact that he would leave and come back then leave again would kind of upset me. So, it was always a lingering question in my mind. Eventually I got tired of being bothered by it and started writing about it.
