Cry a tear drops down my eye as I see the pain you were in, You were my father it
seemed like you were my only friend.
This cannot be real, I wanted so bad for you to heal to be the same person that you
used to be but all i'd ever have was painful memories.
I wanted you here for my wedding for my first child, I wanted you here for everything
for things father's live for.
Now all I can see is the care free life that is put in front of me, My mother is more
like a sister than anything she knows What's best but not like a father would.
I can come home late and she won't suspect a thing, maybe I need a father to put down
that hard cold disapline.
I cry whenever I think about not having someone in my life to hold me down, To keep
me warm, to warn me.
Life is filled with hardships I thought you'd always be there to protect me. Always be
there to hug me.
Cancer took you away so slowly but when you were gone it seemed like just a second. I
wanted you close, I wanted to always be daddy's little girl but nothing worked out the
way I planned it.
I cried, my eyes out now they are dry but they will never heal. The scars from tears
have damage them for life.
I will cry at my graduation, I will cry at my wedding, I will cry at each special
event and just image you there holding a camera.
Capture it daddy I will smile and say ill picture you handing me a tissue because you
never left me sad for long.
Cry I think i'm over that, But remember you'll always be in my heart.
