Daddy's Shoes

a poem by Lady Shaula Salathe, Australia - poetry writer, author, poet

And one day you were here
And one day you were gone
And everybody thought I understood what's going on

And they thought that I was good
And they thought my heart was fine
But your face gets kind of foggy every time I try
To remember your smile
And the things you'd say to me
And the games we'd play
Just you and me

And it makes me mad
That I can feel so sad
And alone
When I remember you're not coming home
And I'll be strong
As I face the world alone
And I'll decide the things I choose till I'm big enough to
Walk in your shoes

I'll grow up without you here
I can do it on my own
Just leave me some hints so I don't get it wrong
You seemed perfect to me
But I can't be like you
Though I already see some bits of you
in me that shine through

And I wonder some times if you a plan
Of the things you'd say
Speaking man to man

And it makes me mad
That I can feel so sad
And alone
When I remember you're not coming home
And I'll be strong
As I face the world alone
And I'll decide the things I choose till I'm big enough to
Walk in your shoes

And it makes me sad
That I can feel this mad
So I'll decide the things I choose till I'm big enough to
Walk in your shoes
