Daddy's Gone

Poem By Craig Piercy

Wake up, Daddy, wake up
Why do you sleep, Daddy?
You lie there so still
Come back, come back, Daddy

I miss you, I love you
I remember how you held me
The long talks, the frequent walks
Wake up, Daddy, wake up

When you spoke to me
I imagined you speaking to me forever
I imagined you seeing my first child
I know you would have thought it wild
Wake up, Daddy, wake up

Why are you cold?
Why are you looking so old?
Why are we not playing?
Daddy, why? Why, Daddy?

I am here, Daddy
I am with you
Are you here with me?
I fear you have just been set free
Sleep tight, Daddy, Daddy sleep

The day you walked away
I watched you leave
Begging you to stay

Goodbye Daddy

A Lost Soul

When you wander around looking for that thing that's missing
It's your soul that's missing

That heartbeat, feeling of retreating
