I'm sorry son

by silence   Mar 6, 2007


I'm so sorry son
That I did this to you
I just didn't know
What else I could do

He wanted to kidnap you
And take you away from me
I didn't want him to hurt you
I hope one day you will see

I watch you as you grow
I know you want him around
Every boy needs his dad
To wrestle on the ground

But I feared for your life
And I feared for my death
Now I'll be here for you
Until my last breath

He will never hurt you
Like he hurt me
He'll never touch you
Or hit you with a key

You'll never feel
The wrath of his fist
You'll never feel pain
Or have a broken wrist

I'm here to watch over you
Even when it hurts to see your face
Every time you fall
I Can feel my heart race

Because daddy went away
He is no longer here
Now I'm standing here
Staring at my worst fear

Fear that you'll grow up
And turn hatred on me
Fear that you won't be the man
That I know you can be

I'll be the best mom
And dad that I can
I'll try my best
To make you a man

I'll try to get all the secrets
And all the answers to
I'll support you in anything
That you decide to do

You'll always be my number one
Even when it's hard to show
No one will ever come before you
These are things I hope you know

Daddy's not here
But one day he'll see
That he didn't deserve you
For you were meant for me
