Daddy being a military man, he was once sent to the Azores

I was a very young kid back then, & it was heartbreaking, for sure

I still recall throwing a screaming fit of “I miss my daddy”,

My stepmother did all she could, to calm & comfort me

even though in her heart she must have felt

like she was on the brink of insanity
