My Sky, My Voice

above the stillness

I’ve heard you

you deserve answers


I’m sorry daddy

I need to be honest

I care about you

but even up here

there is no gentle way

of saying no

or I’m sorry


I can only love

as a spirit


I can’t be with you


my baby hands

can never touch

your cheeks

and heal you


the love

you need

is physical

with real touch


from up here

I’m not enough

you deserve more


please remember

you are worthy of love


take care of yourself

find comfort with the love

of friends and family


I’ll be here

listening if you want

silently caring

shining as much dim light

as I can

on your beautiful heart


My Sky, My Voice
