How to reply
to a image placed in your mind
secrecy holding
yet reality takes a stand
How do you devour
what you do not know
but stand tall
when the words do not flow
How do you speak
the unspoken vowel
no words to slip through the crack
never to rejuvenate what in the distance howls
Beyond the lighting moon
you see the darkness climb
to that bedroom window
Where my daughter shines
As I watch you grow
From a distance place
oh how i wish to hold you
tightly in my embrace
Child, you may not know me
But I know you
This mother will hold you tight
Because in her heart your her tattoo
