Daughter and Dad

Darkness and despair all through his eyes.
I can see the depression and just where it lies.
His laughs were gay and his eyes shone bright.
But then someone took away his light.
He tried to pretend everything was okay.
That things were going just his way.
But his eyes were tired and so was his heart.
He had known this from the very start.
That she one day would turn her back.
It was a heart they said that she lacked.
She was the daughter and he the dad.
But this is a story that turned out sad.
