The mistakes that he has made will never define the person he really is. Thats how I know that this just can't be the real him, all of the fury, the wrong that he does. She would have never said "I do" if it weren't for extraordinary you. Daddy, don't you see? You are remarkable, indeed. The gold band that sits in your drawer, collecting dust, is only because you forgot how to show your lust. Where is that diamond ring that always shined ever so bright? Although lately she's been giving up, after he got into Coors Light. Bottle after bottle, I could count them all day. I mumble, "stop" under my breathe, and he goes, "honey, what did you say?" So I say it again, loud and clear, but I know that quitting this is his biggest fear. Thats okay, because I know this isn't the real you.
