A heart broken child


I took a deep breath and said
Careline i have something to say.
I love you so much and stay strong.

your daddy will miss you
he is sorry he couldn't say goodbye
or give you that last kiss or that last hug.
he loves you so much.

You're daddy is in jail.
I am sorry my princess
but don't you worry
he is fine.

Her look was heartbroken.
She asked me why.
I looked blankly at her and said
I dont know why.

She started to cry and said not again.
I love him so much why him again.
He is not bad, he is not mean,
he loves me a lot as everybody sees

She takes a deep breath and says
I'll be ok, I'm only 7 I can wait.
I love you daddy please come home soon
you will always be in my heart I promise you.
