Home Alone

Dear Daddy,When will you be home?These walls, they feel so emptyIn my house, I feel so alone.Here, my sadness drenches me;It’s been a year of intense growthWhile I learn to live without you.But this numbness is in my toes-This emptiness, I wish you knewIt continues to grow.Missing you comes in wavesTonight I feel like I’m drowning.Daddy, When will I see you again?This is tearing me apartWhen will this separation end?Daddy, USMC broke my heart.They took the man I once knewAnd never will he come backWhen did you become so unglued?I never knew they’d take you like that.I know you fought harder-You’ll be home soon,Your loving daughter.
