The Love of a Daughter
I heard you fighting with Dad, heard pain, heard you being sad.
I just wanted to let you know
I'll always be there for you no matter where you or I go,
But above all, I wanted to let you know that I love you so much.
I need you to know I'll always be there to hold you, I'm your crutch.
I also need you to know
That I found peace reading the Bible as it gave the darkness a glow.
I'm sorry it's come to this, I'm sorry we have to continue to miss,
Miss the good times and the loving glances,
Have we really used up all of our chances?
I'm at peace tonight.
I wasn't, but God granted me the chance to receive some light.
I needed some, and I think you do too Mum.
I love you more than to the moon and back, more than to spaces distant black,
More than the whole universe, more than the earth is diverse.
Above all, know I'm here for you,
So stop running away like you don't have a clue.
I hear your cries, I've seen your tries,
I've seen your sadness, I've seen you being anxious,
I've also seen your love, and I know that God is above.
We're here to protect you, to show you that you don't have to be blue
Because we love you a bunch.
Stop taking the fight alone because I'm really good at taking a punch
As the night turns into morning, I'll shield you from the cruelty,
And all you have to do is come to me,
Just know you aren't alone and I love you more than you'd ever know.
