Forever Beating Strong

'Always crying,
Though no one knows
Because all I have running through my mind is,

I wrote that
October 3,1999
never did he give
the slightest little sign

you see daddy got depressed
lost everything including his home
we're trying our hardest to help him
but he says 'just leave me alone'

I sit here and wonder
what the hell is going on
I want to talk to you daddy
but I heard you were gone

you said you would never leave
and that you would always be there
I need you so much daddy
this really isn't fair

I would talk to you
but you don't have a phone
and don't say I don't care
because why would I cry when I'm all alone

I am your daughter
and I'm left in the cold
with no one to guide me
no daddy to hold

I know things may be tough for you
and you feel we're not here for you maybe
but think about the other things
like, what about your grandbabies

what about your 3 kids
so what if we are grown
you know we need you to help us
because there's still things we can't do on our own

I hope someday soon
you will come back to your feet
because I really don't need to hear
' Mrs Howard we found your daddy, dead on the street'

I try to think of the best
because I believe in you
so please daddy come to your senses
do what you need to do

don't give up daddy
please hold on
because for you you know my heart
will forever be beating strong

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
