Daddy dies and I can feel it in my heart,

daddy relies on the drug that is tearing him apart.

Daddy strikes when he can't take it anymore,

and then he cries: "It's something I cannot ignore".

But daddy dies silently and alone,

his skin's sallow and his sorrow's grown.

I wish I'd be the one who takes his pain away,

but his addiction is stronger than anything I say.

He's ready to surrender but he claims to live for me,

I'm not prepared to lose him; I wonder if he could see.

Daddy's so important despite of what he's done,

I wonder if he knows that he doesn't have to run.

But I cannot judge him for I am the same,

I also own some issues by addiction's name.

I pray that daddy sees the strength he stores within,

to make the sadness leave from his heart and from his skin.
