Wringing wet
In time you will forget
But the feeling
Is not dead yet
In my mind
I’m dying
I focus
On something that is not you
I knew
I watched the time
I sat with you
I held your freedom in my hand
I couldn’t let you understand
Daddy, I knew.
I had to walk away.
It was too much
And i lost my wings to fly
When I lost touch
But I wanted you to rest
In peace
My mother by your side
Was your release
Because I’ll never see you weak.
You wouldn’t let me
Your life was filled with strength
That will not forget me.
Curl against your arm
That tattoo
You’d never tell me about
Until the end.
I knew
Your best friend
I know love
Without end
Daddy, I am Janis.
