Oh Dear Daddy

Oh dear daddy where have you been

You are so close yet so far away.

Oh dear daddy where have you gone?

When each day you do see me and just walk me by.

Look me in the face father and tell what has gone wrong.

I can see the storms of life indeed really  have caved you in.

Oh dear daddy why won't you smile?

To see you be happy is what gives me hope in life.

Oh dear daddy won't you hug me today?

This little small gesture might warm you again.

My one and only father I have been a burden I see

I never really meant to be the one that dimmed the light in your eyes.

Oh dear daddy are you here to stay?

Because even as young woman with you I still love to play

Oh dear daddy are you running away?

Do not go and break my heart showing me love does not stay.

Wherever you go father remember me til your grave

You gave your dear little daughter indeed her first heartbreak.
