The days pass by and I wonder

….when you died, what life in me was lost?

I was eight then, barely human,

….and my soul followed blindly after yours

It’s been 14 years, two months, 16 days,

….only now have I started to heal.

So many years, we mourned you

….the lost trunk in our family tree

I think I recaptured my soul today

….when I finally remembered who I was

I’ve been missing you all these years

….but I’m still your daughter.
