A Poem by Keara Anne

A series of limericks about a bond.


There once was a brave soldier.

His daughter never met anyone bolder.

He worked all day,

And still found time to play.

“I’ll always be here,” he told her.


One day he got called off to war,

And his daughter didn’t know what for.

With a tearful departure,

Of him she’d never been stauncher,

She watched him walk out the door.


When he came back, she had grown;

She was different than he had once known.

While she tried not to cry,

He could see in her eye,

For his absence he would have to atone.


And while she would never admit it,

She had been feeling rather split.

She had to resist

Crying over what he had missed.

On her father she would never quit.
