to our first days, my love, from daddy far away

listen my baby, my darling,
i’m sorry your mother and i
have been fighting so much
lately, it isn’t your fault
it’s both of our faults and nobody’s
fault but what can you do? it’s
just life my darling, my beautiful
baby and i love you so much
and i’m sorry so sorry
that i’m here and i can’t
come to visit and i can’t
pick you up on my shoulders
to dance and make animal noises
and swing you laughing around
because this distance, my darling,
between us is time,
only time,
and not space.
