this is to my father....but i have never gave it to him... Why must i stand here

and watch you die?

You tell me that

i shouldnt be sad.

"Dont cry my little girl."

You always told me.

But how can i

Stand here and watch you die?

You mean the world to me,

But i dont think you know it.

Your in a hospital bed

with pills in hand.

I stand there watching

as you fight for air.

"Dont cry my little girl."

You fight to say.

But how can i not cry,

When my father is dying?

Fighting just for one breath at a time,

But why must i watch?
