She longs hands clasped sincerity
Heart spread open to infinity
As daughter trusts in father's eyes
She offers sads that agonize
Surely comes a burden eased
Heart uplifted pain appeased

Fervent feverish vigil keeps
On lips faith lingers as she sleeps
Day after day no answer comes
And words become like empty sums
She waits thru endless nights and days
Always straight and steady gaze
Tho sadness heaps and hope betrays

Bottled yearning slowly wells
Up inside a million hells
As a candle burns and weeps
Her heart's depression inward seeps
Reach is wavering scales tip
And cold desertion watches her slip --

To the cries of her distress
Hammers the echo none or less

The Prayer
His reminds me of reading reading edgar Allan Poe. Its unique that you keep rhyming your words in the poem very creative of you.
