A Soldier’s Daughter

A Soldier’s Daughter

© Alisha Mcaleese
When I first came into this world 
You could not be there.
But mommy promised every night 
That you would always care.

Each day I grow a little more 
And I’m beginning to look like you 
Mommy always says you love me
And daddy, I love you too.

Don’t think that I am mad at you 
my heart is full of fear.
but daddy I forgive you
I want to make that clear.

I know each day you think of me
and wish you could come home,
each day you also fight for me
so that I am free to roam.

You should know I miss you daddy 
And I really need you near. 
so please be safe at least until
the next time you are here.
