When I was born you smiled so big I thought you were going to hurt your jaw
When you play football with me I know you let me win
When you go shopping with me you have no clue on how to shop for girl clothes but that's ok
You don't always understand me but that's ok
You always cook and I love that
You always support me in the sports I do
Even if I hurt myself in stupid ways playing it
If I make a bad grade your ok you help me study harder
If I fall your there to catch me
You laugh at my silly jokes
Even though they are not funny
You cry when I cry
You worry about me even when I am asleep
You always are proud of me
You tickle me till my stomach hurts from laughing
And you hold my hand when times our rough
You scare those boys away that teased me
You take me out to eat to celebrate my birthday
You always know what I want for christmas
You always forgive me if I do something wrong
You ell me I'm the most beautiful girl  in the school
When I doubt myself and try to go on diets
Even though I look fine
When I doubt myself you say you don't need makeup
Makeup is to cover up flaws and you do not have a single one
You don't always get why I'm so obsessed with makeup and shoes
You always tell me I'm perfect even if I think I'm not
You always tell me you love me
And I always will love you

'...It’s a spectrum of all feeling,' I said.

        'I don’t understand.'

        'Well...it's sorrow when she leaves.
It's anger when you fight.
It's deep hate, but knowing
You cannot be apart.
It's happiness unparalleled.
It's the comfort of nothing,
And the confusion of everything.
It's the fear you love too much,
And the shame of when you fuck it up.
It's the pain when you know it's gone,
And a yearn to try again.'

        'That doesn't sound so good at all.'

        'It's the greatest thing there is.'

The princess poem
or
Daddy's Girls


With my sword and trusty steed
I shall rescue the damsels in need

I shall slay the fiercest of beast
I shall protect the princesses you see

The evil will come, on his drum he’ll play
I will destroy his army and seize the day

The beast is dead, the princesses are safe
Off to the castle to celebrate

Dancing and singing, laughing with glee
Eating a feast, drinking of tea

Then comes dear the reward that I seek
They say “I love you daddy” then kiss my cheek



You my girls put me in a wig then painted my face
Put me in granny's dress and made me bake

Laughing at daddy because he looked funny
The brightest of times and the sun was most sunny

If a chance to go back ever came to pass
To wear make-up and curlers and hear you laugh

I would not miss it for even the world
Because I am your dad and I love my girls.




For my girls, you’re grown up now
You always had such Pure Imagination, my little princesses

Mommy left when I was young
But daddy never cared
And I don't know what's worse of the two evils
Because daddy let my skin bloom in violet stains
But mommy...well I guess mommy was mentally deranged
I learned from a young age
That I'm the only one I got
So if you thought
I needed you
I don't because I've fought
For my spot
With everything that I got
And you're not the only one who's lies I bought
But I've learned
Trust is earned
And I'll never give it away again
countless times I've been burned
I'm exhausted
From everything it's costed
I'm done
You've won

Took a bat to a truck at a party
It wasn't my truck
I was pretty drunk, it was at a party
Struck the glass and made the truck bleed
The owner wasn't even mad about it
He let me hit it again
He started beating it with me with a ski
Rich people have skis in their garages
Owner said it was his dad's truck
We beat it until it bled out in the street
It felt good to beat something
Feels good he said
To beat instead of get beat

Here today, gone tomorrow
Praying for your smile to come back
Even as a ghost, even as a shadow
I can't help myself but missing the good days of yore
I never saw a trace of that kind of pain behind your eyes before
But i can see; around you there's darkness and nothing more
Now i suffer from a constant ache, an ache without a cure
I can't help myself but endure
I ran out of tears early
Can you believe that i was on the verge of never seeing you again, daddy?
Please don't go, you are the best part of me
Please don't be sad, your little girl's still here and she love you more than anything

My dad tried to kill himself...

Been twenty one years the time seems to fly
Since my Dad passed to the other side of the sky
I remember the early years when I was a lad.
Spent playing and messing around with Dad
His time among us he would equally share
With seven kids hardly a moment to spare
He would go to work about half past seven
And be last to bed usually after eleven.
It was Sunday’s, the day I loved most
As Dad always made the Sunday roast
He would be in that kitchen all morning long
Singing to tunes with the radio on
Yorkshire pudding, meat, veg and mash
His Bottle of brandy, and half topped up glass.
Can never make a dinner like the way he use to do,
Been twenty plus year’s dad, and still miss you.

The phone rings
Hello..

Hi
(My heart leaps for a second
I haven't heard this voice for at least three weeks)
How's the weather down there?
It's just snowed, my vehicle is Brocken,
A dead starter,
My starter is dead today too,
No work
No play
But a little bundle of energy in my chest
But not motivated to do anything)
Cold.. snowy, you?
(People say these conversations have little or zero value...)
Nice, thanks
How are you?
(...But it does. Cause in 1978 when it was dry
The crops didn't grow and
People went near dead)
Good
(He's always good. It's a talent that comes naturally
To him, but the ready of us struggle to get to.
I feel like I have to work so
Hard just to break even with everyone living
With what seems like effortless ease.
But he struggles not.)
Cool
(At least he struggles not as far as I can see,
With a heart as big as that there has to be some struggle there.
With care, and affections, comes hope,
And hope hurts until it's fullfiled,
And he hopes, I know he hopes,
Or he wouldn't call,
and I can hear it in his voice,
See it his eyes.
I want to succeed, just to prove you right
For believing in me)
We talk a bit
I hang up the phone,
And get busy.

(Hi)

Hi Dad. Thanks for calling.
#good   #dad   #bad   #talk   #call   #phone   #that   #conversation   #busy   #chitchat  

On the day that you died,
I looked for you.
On the sidewalk,
In the house,
Everywhere,
but I could not find you.

When the sun kissed the sky,
I looked for you.
In the clouds,
In the blue,
All around,
but I could not find you.

When tears fell from my eyes,
I looked for you.
And in my heart,
is where I found you.

For my Dad, 3/16/77 - 12/19/16
