My daughter Brandie who is so sad,
Constantly making me feel bad.
I tried with all my might,
To end our struggles and end the fights.
Show her how much she is loved,
Unfortunately it's never been enough.
All day long and deep into the night,
Thoughts awaken my pain I fight.
Where did I possibly go wrong,
For my baby girl to hate me for so long.
I did the best I could in every way,
Unfortunately now there's a price to pay.
She uses me and takes all I have,
Abusing me mentally and making me sad.
None of it matters you see,
As my love for her she refuses to see.
Every parent goes through something,
Stresses and struggle and so much loving.
Because there is no manual for perfection,
I look into her eyes and get rejection.
In the end I will die,
and never even know why.
