I miss u, daddy


i miss u a lot, daddy
everywhere you've been to
feels empty
why did u leave so early?
you left me broken without a wing
i thought i'd get over it
but i can't
whenever i'm walking on the road
i'm having this image of u
in the apartment waiting for me
i can't do what u told me to do
to count down the days when i see ur face
they seem so far away
but i promise, dad
i won't come back empty-handed
i'll come with a certificate in my newly tanned hand
see u later, dad
it's only 3 months
they'll pass just like the previous ones.

Poem of the Day

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
