Dying Father

The Love

I saw through your eyes before you knew I was to live

through my existence your pride was showcased on life's grid

you loved me before I knew what love even meant

and with you forever my heart will be spent


daddy I want nothing more than to see you happy

i know you're sick and soon you will leave me

bearing the thought of the dagger death has drives me mad

i never want to think about my first love being dead


daddy please know I love you so dear

doctors and medicine heal better than beer

my tears are salty and burn my skin

are these leftover regrets from your past sins?


dont leave me yet, daddy, I can't say goodbye

ive not gotten to be a woman, and Im afraid to cry

ill lose everything when you're gone, you're my one and only

i can't bury you 6 feet daddy, you're a part of me.


im scared, what can I say? I've got rverything on the line

when you're gone you won't come back and nothing will be fine

stop saying you don't care because I refuse to believe it's your time

please, please, live for me.
