In silence she walks

Is she alone?

Always she is alone

Why so alone?

Her father is gone

Where is he?

He left one night

Where is he?

Her parents had fought

What caused that?

He lost his job

That was that?

Her father is gone

Where is he?

He left one night

Where is he?

He drank too much

Now I see

He could be mean

Oh how scary

Her father is gone

Where is he?

He left one night

Where is he?

Years have gone by

Well how many?

Eleven years have passed

How is she?

Her father is gone

Where is he?

He left one night

Where is he?

She left her mom

Why is this?

Her mom's husband is mean

She remarried?

Her father is gone

Where is he?

He left one night

Where is he?

She found a number

Is it her dad's?

She can't call him

Is she mad?

Her father is gone

Where is he?

He left one night

Where is he?

She is too afraid

Oh I see

She wants to call

Why doesn't she?

Her father is gone

Where is he?

He left one night

Where is he?

She doesn't know

What is it?

If he loves her

This I get

Her father is gone

Where is he?

He left one night

Where is he?

She may never know

She must call

What does she say?

Tell him all?
