Where Frozen Embers Still Burn

I sat down to see
my past looking at me

My soul had a yearning
for embers still burning

My eyes grew wet
from years of regret

The love that I seek
leaves my heart weak

The father I needed
with pleas left unheeded

Take away the pain
left in his name

Wash away the memory
of the fear he gave to me

Frozen in time
with his horrendous crime
