Faded white where your photo stood
Swirling thoughts of you in my head
My make believe memories of you
This beating heart now wrapped in blue
The catchers mitt from our first game
The old chev together we saved
Every word that you said to me
Stuck inside me and never free
From high atop your pedestal
A golden cape and magic wand
My Superhero and much more
Dad, you were my entire world
Reality soon came to bear
In time I knew you never cared
Once long ago I was your girl
Your choices now I see were cruel
Shattered pieces woven with time
Put back together best she could
Cautiously she treads through this life
Her beating heart is made of wood
