Daughter’s Silence

Daddy held her face and tried to read into her eyes.
Could he recognize his own daughter anymore? Does he know her?
Hazel stare into his, and flashbacks flicker through time as it passes mercilessly
Cascades of pain, heartbreak, loss and longing borne from within spring to surface.
Daddy’s at loss and confusion.
Has it only been two months? A year? Maybe seven years?
He was dire to ask her if she was alright – yet he knew she was everything but alright.
He was desperate to ask her why she was so silent
but then silence was the only language she could speak.
