Why Can't That Be Me


Why can't that be me, the daughter
you come home to
Loving me all the time, and saying I miss you
Why can't that be me, the daughter you call everyday
The daughter that you miss so much, that she takes your breath away
Why can't that be me, the daughter that makes you cry
The one that touches your soul, everytime she says goodbye
Why can't that be us, daughter to father
Without you in my life, everyday it gets harder

    I couldn’t imagine this hurt but you do have a loving heavenly father and if you want to see and learn about unconditional love then I suggest you should learn about your heavenly father. Another thing is understanding free will and what you do with yours.

    I invite you to read my poem “Daughter” and just know you are perfect and always wanted. Best Wishes (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
