Daddy

I saw the world through your eyes;
You shone through every smile.
You swam deep inside my Welsh blood – 
I heard you with each word I spoke.

What did I do to cause you so much hurt;
How did I shatter your heart?
What had I done to lose you;
How did I cause you to run so far?

Daddy couldn’t have been all wrong;
He just didn’t know how to talk to me.
I waited to feel his love for too long – 
Daddy didn’t know how to embrace me.
