    Jessica 6-2-07

    I offer to you my help
    my heart
    my love
    and you just turn away

    But daddy you've been in prison almost half my life
    is all that you will say
    cant you see how it hurts me too
    in much the self same way

    Yet you get angry when I fight for you, for us
    and refuse to write or even speak on the phone
    MY dear sweet daughter 
    your anger and your silence
    make me feel so sad and so alone

    All I want is to be your daddy
    and to hear you say those words 
    as you sit by my side

    You just don't know all the days and nights
    when all I've done is cried
    I know all too well all the mistakes I've made
    I've paid somehow for each and every one

    But child of mine please understand
    I can carry them no more
    my past I must let go
    cant you just please understand 
    that despite it all till the day I die 
    I'll always love you so.

    In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

    Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
