growing up

On a hollow morn fill with joy 

Shinny and peaceful as Easter 

Had I known that daddy wasn’t happy 

As he said, be quite as words followed 

Daddy did 

He did say Easter bunnies have crossed the road 

And gone are they  

He murdered you dear Easter bunny 

Terrified and sad I grabbed my pillow 

Alone I want to be 

Daddy did say those horrible words 

Easter bunnies do not exist, although you did 

At least in my little tiny happy chocolate world 

Daddy did make me believe in your existence 

Tis the Easter bunny, thee carried gold and grey chocolate eggs 

From house to house for all around the world 

Lovely in fight for motivation in deep grief 

Daddy did always say 

Jesus said: I am resurrection and the life 

He who believes in me will live,  

Even though he dies 

So do I believe 

That you will live again 

My dearest Easter bunny
