To Tears, With Love
She looked up at me as she cried.
I gave her a hug and wiped her eyes.
I saw a fear in her that couldn’t be explained.
How do I tell her she would never see her father again?
Dear child, why do you cry and weep?
God has come and rocked your father to sleep.
He knew you would come to see him and not realize,
why he’s not talking to you, and he apologizes.
He told me to tell you, he will see you again one day.
Don’t worry about him, in the time that he is away.
He said he will watch over you, and watch you grow.
He said he will be at every graduation and ballerina show.
He told me that you might not see him because he has to hide.
He said name your favorite teddy bear after him and put him on your side.
So whenever you need to talk to him, or need a fatherly bear hug.
You can hug this bear from your father sent with his love
