My Daughter

What exactly have I done so wrong?
I've listened to her cries and her pleas
I tried to understand all of her needs, hopes
and dreams
Yet as time goes on she continues hating me
Not trusting in my love
Not believing in our friendship
How can I remind her so she'll remember?

Why has she left me all alone?
I've always talked and cried with her
I've laughed and joked around
I've shared my secrets with her and all of
my feelings
But as she get older she wants to leave, run
away so to speak
Never turning back, not even a blink
Will I ever see her again?

Where has my daughter gone?
She's hiding behind the teenage smoke
screen
Rather be lonely then come back to me
I have to be the parent which she doesn't
like
Sorry if this she can't see
I can't seem to change her mind
How can I tell her I love her, and have her
believe?

I there any chance to help our relationship to
survive?
I've given her my heart and my soul
But she don't seem to care anymore
The closeness we once had seems to have died,
in a couple of weeks' time
It's a possibility she may one day forgive
Allowing are anger, pride and hurt to go
away, not holding a grudge for things that
are not my fault
Will she ever accept my apologies?
