Dear father


My father, oh, my father

Do not go in silence
Say something!
I feel it on your lips
Say it!

Say it! Say something!
Do not disappear in dumbness
Let it go!
I am in the air in your lungs
Say it!

Do not close your eyelids
Look at me!
I see myself in the waves in your eyes
Say it!

Delay your absence
Look at me and hold me
Like the shadow in your wings

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
