The Daughter’s Song

As a child I long for You,

Your voice speaks to me in dreams

whispering “I will never leave you nor forsake you”

early impressions of You are etched upon my heart

I sing sweetly to You. 

The Daughters SongAs I grow, I run defiant

withholding my morning song from You

angry and alone,

I believe You are no longer here

so in desperation I turn to others

my song is silent. 

As I hide ashamed in my pit

memories of a child return,

Your voice speaks to me in dreams

loudly declaring a Father’s love

becoming a sirens song

I cannot contain my joy 

and I sing only to You forevermore.
