Treasure Island

Hannah Hebditch


Daddys Gone


Stars fall from the sky
Melting over a young girls heart as she cries
Her daddy’s gone
Says it’s where he belongs

The heat of war breathing down her neck
Burning through her days like today and the next
Guns shooting inside her head
It hurts so much, even though she’s almost deaf

She can hear his pain
And knows that he’s losing this sick game
She can hear his breathing
So heavy, she stopped believing…

“Daddy, the sun stopped shining long ago
Its dark, it always used to glow
Can’t you come home, spread some light?
Comfort me like you used to, whenever I cry

Daddy, do you still love me?
Or is there no longer a reason?
Do you miss my loving hug like I miss yours?
What about when we used to surf happiness along the shores?

Daddy, are you still alive?
If so, give me a sign
Your last letter was seven months ago
And the time is going so slow”

“Daddy, I found these poppies amongst my letters when I was three
Is this what I think it means?
I really miss you
But you won’t come home anytime soon”…
