Daddy,
Do you see me?
Do you see who I've become?
The woman you left me to be,
Daddy, why do I feel so numb?
The anger and pain still linger
It's like I had you in my hands
But you still slipped through my finger
Not listening to my hearts demands
I cried for you as you lay there in that bed
I begged God not to take you
To take me instead
Why'd he do it? Did he have to?
You said you'd always be here!
I didn't think you meant in spirit
All these memories all the tears
All the time alone here as i sit.
Left me to tend to a broken heart
Was this who I was meant to be?
The woman whose broken apart
Is this what you invisioned for me?
Two years have gone by
Dad, two years of this pain
Two years of asking why
And wishing I could see you again.
I miss you more than words can ever say
More than words can ever mean
I'll see you again daddy for your peace i will pray
Maybe one day I'll wake up and this will all be a dream.
