You Promised Me


You said you’d                                                                    Crying

Never leave me

You promised

Every time I asked

So why am I sitting

Here in my bedroom

Tucking my pillows

Around me hugging

Them close to me

You promised Daddy

You’d never go a way

You said I would

Always be your

Little girl your

Only one but

Mommy said

You went a way

That you had to

Go visit a new

Home way up

In the sky

You promised Daddy

You would never leave me

And yet here I sit with

Teary cheeks and red eyes

My heart is broken

You broke your promise

Daddy please come back.

  1. Beautiful, Terry …. we have each other only on loan it seams like … I don’t have any memories of my dad at all, far too many children around the world that don’t have any parents at all. I was lucky that I had my mom for so many years.
    Truly beautiful, Terry …
