The Promise That You’ve Broken – 4/28/2017

You made a promise to a family
That you could never keep
You told your daughter you loved her
That she was the whole world to you
You swore you’d never leave her
So why did you

You said you loved her mother
And all her sisters too
You said you cared about them
But you only cared for you
I’m sorry we were never enough
To be your happily ever after

I hope someday that we both find love
And are friends still after

There was a wife and children
Sitting home alone
You distracted yourself from what
You pretended to love most
And now we’ve all given up
And gone our separate ways

I hope someday we both find love
And finally understand each other

So when you’re with your new family
The ones you now love
Please remember your little daughter
The one crying in the dust
You said you’d never leave her
You swore to keep her safe
Well that’s just a broken promise now
Now that you’ve gone away

And I hope someday we both find love
Because, Daddy, I’ll always be
Your little girl
Waiting
With your broken promise
