My Daddy Died
By Suzanne St. John

How do I write
When all I want is to cry?
Months passed and it's the same every night
Why did my daddy have to die?
Young or old it's too hard to manage
I miss him too much to move on
His absence is creating damage
My heart just isn't that strong
The one man who always loved me
Saw right through all I tried to hide
Built me up, taught me to think, set me free
Until the night I had to face he died
Now I'm a prisoner to the pain
I just wasn't ready to face this? How?
I need him to pick me up before I go insane
But my daddy isn't here with me now
Daddy who will care when I cry?
Who will say the right things when I'm defeated?
Who will show me truth in the face of a lie?
How am I supposed to accept he is dead?
Nothing ever ripped me so deep
Nothing ever destroyed so much of me
All I can do is weep; all I can do is weep
My daddy died, he can't hear my plea
Jesus I hope you reached him in time
Please God have a hold of my prayer
Answer me with the truth not rhyme
Tell me my daddy is with you there!
