When will you be home?
These walls, they feel so empty
In my house, I feel so alone.
Here, my sadness drenches me;
It’s been a year of intense growth
While I learn to live without you.
But this numbness is in my toes-
This emptiness, I wish you knew
It continues to grow.
Missing you comes in waves
Tonight I feel like I’m drowning.
When will I see you again?
This is tearing me apart
When will this separation end?
Daddy, USMC broke my heart.
They took the man I once knew
And never will he come back
When did you become so unglued?
I never knew they’d take you like that.
I know you fought harder-
You’ll be home soon,
Your loving daughter.
