Daddy Help Me

Daddy what do I do your not here to hold me as I cry
The tears falling down my face as I think of you hurts
You left me all alone and all I have left is memories
Pictures of you and me as I grow up in your loving care

You left me here to fend for myself with only the words I love you
I miss you with all of my heart and sometimes it feels like no one else cares
Watching as mom meets someone new acting like you were never here
As if you never loved us and took care of us when we needed you

Daddy I don't know what to do I don't want to live without you
No matter how many times I think I will go through a day without feeling so bad
Now I know I wasn't meant to live without you and will always be alone
I hate seeing mom with another guy knowing how much you loved her

You haven't been gone six months and yet she's seeing someone new
Someone who reminds me of you in all different ways
Someone who she spends all her time with as if he was everything
She laughs and teases as if this man was you

What am I supposed to do daddy I don't want him to stay
I want mom to be happy but not if it means someone new in our lives
I miss you so much it hurts to see her this way knowing you're watching
I wait for the day I get to see you again and you hold me like you used to

The tears I cry fall down my cheeks memories of you making it hard to breathe
I know I should be happy but the tears keep falling and the pain is still to hard to bear
I know I'm being selfish but it hurts so much to see her this way
Daddy help me what am I supposed to do

My grandpa died of lung cancer. He took care of me since I was little so he was like my dad. My grandma has been seeing this other dude and it hurts me to see that knowing how much they connected and now her seeing this guy it makes me cry and every time she mentions his name I die a little more inside. I understood what she is saying and I'm going through the same so just know that you are not alone.
