Waiting

I answered the phone
Only to hear my mother's cry.
She said you had been gone
All she could say is why.

The first day of school
No daddy to be there
The second day of school
No where to be seen nor heard

Calming her down,
I try not to cry.
My door full of pictures,
Now holes through his eyes.
You should regret your actions,
My memories half gone.

She was so weak,
I had to pull her up to be strong.
I had to be the stone wall,
I took the problems away for her.

They were too young,
Hopefully they can forgive fast.
I knew your heart longer,
My daddy is what you were.

My daddy had done something stupid,
I, His daughter dealt with family problems
Talk
Listen
Cope
Stress
Pain
Guilt
Love
Upset

Emotions still here,
waiting for my daddy to come back.
