"how i miss you, daddy"

If I had my life to do over
I'd have chosen you to be my dad
once more.

I watched you fly away
and wished I'd been born with wings
To fly away with you, that day.

I loved you and honored you
you took all my tears away,
But to me you meant the world
and your love was always pure.

I will always remember you
as my daddy
Who gave love at his best.

Remember when you promised me
To be in my quinceañera, then
A promise was broken when you left,
You had promised me the best present
On my birthday

Sleepless, dreamless, hopeless nights,
I wish for you to come.
Your time seemed all too short and
I feel so alone.

I wish for you to put your hands around me,
and make me cozy and warm,
I wish for you to bring me joy,
when everything seems so bad,
and take me out of this bad mood,
that makes me feel so sad.

I wish for everything to be as it was before.

Does it have to end like this?
For I'm not back in your arms,
my dreams still torn,
my heart still empty,
my life with no happiness,
my future days without you.


What can I take from this
Nothing I suppose, but I’ll always
Love you wherever you are.
Remember that for sure.
