Day 12: Memories

The door to your room stay shut,
I walk by each day, my hand itching to open it.
To burst in and scream “Appa-I’m home.”
Yell at you for staying awake until I come,
Late and careless with time,
Forgetting that your eyes will not shut,
When your girls are not in your house.
Then again you lied,
You closed those eyes when we weren’t here.
You didn’t wait for me to say those words again,
And tell you I am an adult,
I would be fine…
I would be fine…
I will be fine.
