A Fathers Love

Lying, waiting,
Feeling the fear,
Growing pains,
Ever near.

Door closed,
never locked
Footsteps closer
Heartbeat stops

A fathers love
You can't deny
Wrapped in darkness
Makes you cry

In the light
Of a fathers touch
Shivering chattel
Sees so much

Leave me be
Let me die
Never asking
The reason why

A fathers touch
Regret and pain
A fathers love
Souls black stain
Spartanone Spartanone
