Oh my daughter
Legs in plaster
Taught to keep her
Knees together

Oh my daughter
Skin grew over
And taught to walk some
Three years later

Oh my daughter
The fragile features of your mother
They’re buried under
The plainer features of your father

Oh my daughter
Life rushed from you
And split in ways you
Weren’t meant to

And oh my daughter
Such crushing pressure
At half the age of
Your poor mother

Oh my daughter
Your ruddy cheeks will never weather
And buried under
The fragile features of your mother
