So Far Away

My heart is broke because your so far away,
my mind can't stop thinking about the day,that 
you will finally get to come home,and you 
will no longer have to feel so alone.

All of your family is missing you so much,
we are counting the days to again feel your touch.

You have changed so much since to day you had to leave,
we know that you will be ok as long as you believe.

You are a good person and you have a big heart,
just hold your head high and make a new start.

You are smart and strong and can make your life good,
it's time for you to be happy the way that you should.

                     HAVE FAITH AND BELIEVE!
                     You can be who you want to be.


 I wrote this for my daughter when she got into some trouble and had to spend a couple years away from us.Happy to say she is home and is now a mommy.And a very good one.
