She cried when she fell,
He asked her not to swell.
She turned to him when helpless,
All he said was ‘Fight your own battles’.
She walked towards him for advice,
He spoke, but little, in a stern voice.
So, she believed he knew nothing,
Soon she managed without bothering him.
She flew so high, he went out of sight,
Her troubles grew, she wondered why.
She looked for him everywhere,
His stern voice was what she needed to go back up there.
Her soul filled with regret, she realized,
He was her strength, he was her friend,
He was all she needed then.
Who else could love and protect her so silently,
No one except her dearest Daddy.
