To the women who needed my daddy
I feel your pain
I know it is your birthday today and it would mean a lot if he was there.
So I understand.
Maybe he will be in mine next year.
To the women who wanted my daddy
I totally get you.
I also wanted him near
I see how he holds you, hugs on you, kisses your cheeks
I know how it makes you feel, secure.
But no worries, maybe I will feel secure next year.
To the women who shacked up with my daddy
Yeah, must be nice to see him everyday
I see him too when I create stories in mind and he is there as my hero
But hey, maybe I will see him everyday next year.
To the women who cried over my daddy
Girl, I know them tears
For I’ve cried them for the last 44 years.
For just like yours, my daddy was not there either.
