Why did you have to go

by lish   Sep 9, 2007

As I sit here in my corner
Wondering if he will die
I think about our fight
Not knowing it was our last goodbye

Mitchell promises me you'll live
But I know hes full of sh*t
My heart falls apart
Slowly, bit by bit

The policeman comes and gets me
My body continues to shake
I cant believe what I'm seeing
I pray to god its fake

My daddy's just lying there
Cold and stiff on the ground
I think I'm going to faint
As my heart begins to pound

I run into mummy's arms
And she tells me its okay
My daddy was so special
But now he wont see another day

As they zip up the body bag
I slowly fall to the ground
Balling my eyes out
Not wanting to hear a sound

I woke up the next morning
And ran into daddy's bed
The images started flashing
and running through my head

I scream into the distance
Daddy I miss you so
Why was it you
Why did you have to go

I'll live the rest of my life
The rest without you here
Daddy ill keep you with me
I promise you'll always be near
