Answer Me This Daddy.

by CourtneyyContageous   Aug 10, 2008


Tell me where's your heaven daddy?
Where does your soul reside?
Why'd you have to leave me here?
Why did you have to die?

Is it my fault for not stopping you?
Crying as you exited our driveway
I knew I should have stopped you
But I was too scared that horrible day

Tell me how it felt daddy
To know that you abandoned me?
You never kept your promise, did you?
How did it feel to stand so unfaithfully?

Did you ever think about me
When you decided to drink and drive?
Maybe if you waited for that taxi
You'd still be here, alive

I can never forget your face
Your smell, your welcoming eyes
They haunt me in my dreams
And torture me until I cry

What I wouldn't give right now
To see you one last time
To hug, kiss, and talk to you
And finally say those dreadful goodbyes

So tell me where's your heaven daddy?
Where does your soul reside?
Why'd you have to leave me here?
Why did you have to die?

    I know how you feel, I lost my father and dad. It's very hard. My father left me and my dad past away. I don't even know what to say.
    This was great and had tons of emotion.
