  • Daddy's gone but not away
    near to all in those still hours
    in lonely parking lots and train stations
    he fights the battles that few men see

    But when he is home, he becomes your home
    when away he knows; he remains that harbor
    you may find him in your own moments
    when our village drips with unreasonable golds
