A Paradise Lost

She lay on the floor, lifeless cold
A daughter’s paradise forever lost

How I wish she walks past that door
Embrace me, take me to a tranquil shore

May once again affection shine through her eyes
Cradle me in lap through the dark skies

Just once again cuddle away my fears
Make a blanket of love, a bag full of cheers

One more time hold that turbulent storm
Ringing in my ears ‘Be brave, stay strong’

This one time pick me up as I fall
Whisper ‘No time to sorrow, take stock of the goal’

How realisation dawned with a serrated knife
Ephemeral is spring, so is life
