Daddy's Little Girl
she stares at him thinking that's my Daddy.
She gets older hardly seeing him, waiting,
no sign of him.
He comes home drunk smelling of liquor.
She doesn't care,
you're my Daddy she says and I love you.
Her mother's tired but stays with him for her children.
Daddy's little girl gets older,
she takes care of her Daddy.
He gets sick .
He is put in the hospital slowly dying,
she cries Daddy don't leave me.
Her heart is breaking slowing.
She hoping he gets better,
hoping the doctors are wrong.
Doctors give up hope but does not still hoping.
It gets harder for Daddy to breath,
three more breaths a Smile from daddy she misses it' he smiles again,
silence then he's gone.
She doesn't want to let go.
Its time to say good bye, good bye Daddy I love you.
