Like A Daughter

I used to cling to him in the water
For fear he might let me go
I used to feel like a daughter
Until I sank down below

I went floating wayward searching
Through a lonely sea
In a strange kind of bubble
A silent shell enclosed in grief

Until one day I was washed up
A piece of driftwood on the beach
In acceptance of the waves and the land
He was so far I could never reach

Often I go back under
I forget all that I know
I want to feel like a daughter
Like you'd never ever let me go

He let me go
