What Do You Do?
What do you do when every smile becomes a LIE?
What do you do knowing he won't be there?
You're turning 16 and your heart turns cold and bare!
When you can't be happy you can't laugh anymore!
You can't pretend he'll walk through that door!
With flowers and balloons and a cute teddy bear,
and a little pink bow to go in your hair,
a smile on his face and a tear in his eye!
Before his big hug out comes a sigh!
"My little girl is growing up so fast!"
That's what I wish I'd hear him say,
Another gaze into my eyes,
Darling "I LOVE YOU happy 16th birthday!!!!
What do I do when my hands start to shake?
when my heart starts to yearn for that smile on his face?
16 years of life and almost 3 with pain in my heart,
A million left to go and I don't know where to start!!!!
So I'm lying here tonight my heart crushed and sad,
It's SWEET 16 this year without my amazing dad!!!
