Daddy has gone to War is a poem written by Tauranga Girls' College Year 10 students Grace Westenbury, Daisy Sedwick, Ella Lawry and Tabitha Marshall:

‘Daddy has gone to War’
 
Daddy has gone to war,
One day he walked out the door.
Mum says I won’t see him no more.
Because my daddy has gone to war.
 
Dad has been gone for three years,
I still shed for him tears-
His safety and life are my biggest fears
and he could be gone for many more years.
Because my daddy has gone to war.
 
I’m not sure if dad will come home.
Where he is, I really don’t know.
I miss him and I feel alone.
For nearly five years he hasn’t been home.
Because my daddy has gone to war.
 
My daddy returned today
a stranger, smaller and grey.
Dad didn’t seem to have much to say
and he seems to have lost his way.
Because my daddy went to war.
 
- Grace Westenberg, Daisy Sedgwick, Tabitha Marshall and Ella Lawry, Year 10 Tauranga Girls’ College.
