Pouring Rain

By
Seems like she’s got evrything,
A smile on her face.
But deep down inside is where she hides
Emotions that are raging.

Her father’s growing distant,
She can’t kiss him goodnight.
As she lies in her empty bedroom
She wonders what it was like…

A child taking first steps,
She tries and tries and tries.
With her daddy right there beside her
When nothing could go wrong.

Her friends can’t know about it,
She puts on a façade.
To conceal the pain inside her and
To push back all the rai-ain.
She seems to be getting worse,
Too close to breaking down.
When she talks to mommy about it
She acts like she’s not list-ning.

Thirteen years ago from now,
Her siblings were then born.
She strived for her daddy’s attention
To make sure that he loved her.

At her best friend’s sweet sixteen,
The father-daughter dance.
She wonders if she would be able
To dance with daddy her night.

Her friends can’t know about it,
She puts on a façade.
To conceal the pain inside her and
To push back all the rai-ain.
Mommy seems like she’s scheming,
Talks to daddy all night.
Her room is right above theirs and yet
She’s still close to breaking down.

On the night when she’s sixteen,
Her friends have all gone home.
Her daddy comes into her room and
With words of love it’s alright.

The pain is now behind her,
She’s stopped the pouring rain.
The father and daughter had their dance
So now it’s perfect again.
Her fairytale is finished,
With daddy closer still.
The bond they share will always be there
Within her daddy’s hea-art.
