Daddy - Poem by Keli Mims

Daddy, why can't I get it right,
Daddy, why can't I see the light,
Daddy, daddy, I'm afraid.

Daddy, I'm so hopless and alone,
Daddy, I'm so cold like a stone,
Daddy, daddy, I'm afraid.

Daddy, I don't know what to do,
Daddy, I don't even see you,
Daddy, daddy, I'm afraid.

Daddy, I'm not sure what to say,
Daddy, I'm not sure about today,
Daddy, daddy, I'm afraid.

Daddy, I didn't know I needed you,
Daddy, I didn't know I'd miss you,
Daddy, daddy, I'm afraid.

Daddy, I can't say anything right,
Daddy, I can't do anything right,
Daddy, daddy, I'm afraid.

Daddy, I feel like I've failed you,
Daddy, I feel like I dissapointed you,
Daddy, daddy, I'm afraid.

Daddy, I can't do or say anything right,
Daddy, I can't reach, see or find the light,
Daddy, I'm so scared I've failed you,
Daddy, I'm so scared what do I do.

Daddy, daddy, do you still love me?
