Our tearful goodbyes yet stain Emily's and my eyes.
Our tearful goodbyes
yet stain
Emily's and my eyes.

Someone once said,
as if knowing,
in a time long dead
that parting,
finally going,
was such sweet sorrow.

There is no sugar
in a daughter's
heartbroken tears,
none that I could see.

Our tearful goodbyes
yet stain
Emily's and my eyes,
and still you insist
in your cold
heartless way
to come between us
every day.

Emily I love you.
No matter what
mama says,
it's true.

I hope she
lets your heart
speak for you.

When you make a
decision,
as every child
must do,
may you
remember that
daddy always
will be here for you.

Our tearful goodbyes
yet stain
Emily's and my eyes.
