Give Daddy Back To Me... - Poem by Lisa Vagnarelli

Raised by my mother
All by herself..
No sister, no brother
To share our home..

Looking at the photos
That was taken before I was born..
Found one of the best
Emotionally torn..

In a line down between
My mother and this man
This man I've never seen
Known as my father..

Oh Lord, hear me cry
I'm down on my knees
I've got my hands together
And I'm begging you please..
Give Daddy back to me..

His eyes I have
His genes I'm carrying
The colour of my hair matches his,
And he made me, me..

God, I'm so frustrated that
He never gave me a chance to say
How much I love him
Day after day..

Oh Lord, hear me cry
I'm down on my knees
I've got my hands together
And I'm begging you please..
Give Daddy back to me..

He left a pregnant woman
For guns, blood and death..
He should have been a man
And stayed for us, yeah...

I'll never forgive him for leaving
To go to this goddamned war..
I'll never forgive him for dying
I just can't...

Oh Lord, hear me cry
I'm down on my knees
I've got my hands together
And I'm begging you please..
Give Daddy back to me..

He belongs with me
Goddamn
Yes, he belongs with me,
Goddamn..

Come on, Lord, hear me cry
I'm down on my knees
I've got my hands together
And I'm begging you please..
Give Daddy back to me..

You have the power
To create life, they say..
And you have the power
To take it away..

So why don't you
Give Daddy back to me..
For a second, or two
I just wanna hold him..

He belongs with me
Goddamn
Yes, he belongs with me,
Goddamn..

Come on, Lord, hear me cry
I'm down on my knees
I've got my hands together
And I'm begging you please..
Give Daddy back to me..
Give Daddy back to me..
Give Daddy back to me..
