Daddy Wasn't There

Daddy Wasn’t There

You were there when I needed you

to catch me if I’d fall

But daddy didn’t love me

he didn’t care at all

When I was sick, you cured me

made sure I was ok

but daddy never did that

because he went away

you put me in this life

and were always there for me

but daddy wasn’t there

it was hard for him to see

I was tucked into bed

and was kissed good-night

but daddy was never there

to turn off the light

you held me close to you

every time I fell

But daddy didn’t crack

he stayed inside his shell

so thank you mom, for being there

even if daddy’s away

I’m always here to be with you

because I know you’re here to stay

I love you, mom, with all my heart,

so please don’t leave my side

don’t turn into daddy,

because daddy lied

I will always be your helper,

I will always be your friend

just let me know

that your mother’s comfort will never end
