Daddy's Darling...Or Not Poem by sania harris

Daddy's Darling...Or Not

Rating: 5.0

A tear dropp fell today
From a childs innocent eyes
The reason, I know not
Might be of fear, terror and lies

A tear dropp fell today
Unnoticed and forgotten…
From her blue azure eyes
It lay silent, fear gripped

Usually tucked into bed
Happy, content, fully fed
Kissed and tenderly hugged
Memories remaining
And they are fading

Nothing‘s the same right now
Things changed, don’t know how
Her eyes are gripped in fear
Reason hidden beneath her tears

Her young body is frail
Her footprints leaving a trail
She wonders what has happened
Her daddy, he has changed

She is touched, not by love
Nowhere, she sees a peaceful dove
She is destroyed, by her trusted man
To breath, she tries, she can’t

Daddy’s darling has changed for worse
Daddy’s darling is gone
Daddy’s darling is bitterly cursed
Daddy’s darling, gone with the wind

A tear dropp falls from her eyes
Falls to the harsh ground
It rolls slowly down her cheeks
It breaks…! ! !
And the memories wash away
