I Can Hear Him Coming For Me

default ©

Published: May 2008

Late at night I lie in fright
I can hear him coming for me
One hand over my mouth to keep me quite
Dear God, please let my mother see

Always trying to find the strength to keep him away
I can hear him coming for me
The stench of booze on his breath I still remember to this day
Dear God, please hear my plea

Daughter do not speak of this or you will die
I can hear him coming for me
He warns me not to fight don't even try
Dear God, please help set me free

Wishing I could find away to escape this abuse
I can hear him coming for me
Telling me I was special was only an excuse
Dear God, please make him let me be

Somehow I found the courage deep inside to be bold
I can hear him coming for me
Stay way from me I warned for I have told
Dear God, I am free at last, free to be me

Why do I feel so ashamed?
I can hear him coming for me
No daddy, it is you who you that I blame
Dear God, I wonder if that little girl will ever find forgiveness, should she?
