Tribute to my dad

Gregory Duane Brown 3/16/52 – 5/16/07

THERE’S A LITTLE GIRL INSIDE OF ME
WHO WANTS TO KNOW
“WHY DID YOU LEAVE ME?”
“WHY DID YOU HURT ME SO?”

THERE’S A LITTLE GIRL INSIDE OF ME
WHO MISSED THE WONDERFUL DAYS
WHEN YOU WOULD TAKE ME TO THE PARK
WITH YOU TO PLAY

THERE’S A LITTLE GIRL INSIDE OF ME
WHO WANTS TO KNOW WHY
“WHY DON’T YOU COME AND SEE ME ANYMORE?”
“WHY DO YOU HURT ME. WHY DO YOU MAKE ME CRY?”

THERE’S A LITTLE GIRL
WHO WANTS YOU TO KNOW
THAT YOU A HAVE A SPECIAL PERSON
WHO LOVES YOU SO
EVEN THOUGH
YOU’VE HURT ME SO MUCH

I WISH THAT I CAN GIVE
YOUR HEART A TOUCH
YOU ALSO HAVE A YOUNG MAN
WHO DOESN’T KNOW WHO YOU ARE
“WHY WON’T YOU GO SEE HIM TOO AND
LET HIM KNOW YOUR NOT FAR?”

I KNOW THAT SOON YOU WON’T BE HERE
BECAUSE OF YOUR CONDITION
BUT I HOPE YOU DO LET YOUR KIDS
KNOW THAT YOU LOVE AND MISS THEM

Picture of my dad and I when I was younger

MY FATHER IS A SIMPLE MAN
WHO KNOWS I LOVE HIM
BUT HE NEVER COMES AROUND
EVEN THOUGH HE KNOWS I’M HURTING
HE HAS LUNG CANCER
AND SOMETIMES IT’S NOT FAIR
THAT I SHOULD WORRY
OR EVEN CARE
HE USED TO HAVE A HEART OF GOLD
AND TELL ME THAT HE LOVES ME
BUT WHEN HE LEFT MY LIFE
I FEEL LIKE HE LEFT ME BE
TO WONDER WHY
HE TREATS ME LIKE HE DOES
AND WHY HE TOOK HIS LOVE FROM ME
MY LOVE FOR HIM
IS NOW SORT OF FUZZY
THE ONE I FEEL SORRY FOR THE MOST
IS MY WONDERFUL BROTHER
AND HOW HE COULD JUST LEAVE HIM
TO NEVER KNOW HIS FATHER
