The Old Days
Author: Sweet Sara


I just want my dad to see he has a happy daughter
And i want him to wish to see me walk down the isle
I want it to be some happy days
For him t let go his drunk ways
I want this life to be cool
Like that summer day we swam in the ool
We used to go down to the beach
And wondered if we should have brought our dog for a walk on a leash
I want us to go to the movies
To ask him to help me catch up on the altes fashion groovies
I want him to take me to the ice-cream shop
And if it's not enough money to just buy me a cute lollypop
I'd like us to be the same old ones who were always in a good mood
Competing to see who ate the most junk food
I want to watch him dance n twirl
I want to be daddy's little girl
I want this pain to stop
So i can caontinue my dreams all the way to the top
I wish my dad sould see
That he is everything to me
I want us to do the things happy families do
And i want to be able to say, "i love you"
I dont want my dad to die
Caused by his dumb lies
I want him to stop drinkin beer
'Cuz that's adding to my fear
He doesnt know when the cans will together sum
Getting ready for his funeral to come
I can't continue my life
and possibly end up someone's wife
If he keeps drinkin
Making his mind do some swimming
I love my dad he's very lovely
That I wish he would stop so badly
him findin a way out
It's a huge doubt
But I have faith in him
Even though to him this idea is dim
I know he can make it
A little by a little
Bit by bit
So my mom won't become a widow
As the days go by
I want to die
To take my dads place
For him to take my space
So he won't have to go
'Cuz i love him so
I'll have to be patient and wait
Instead of filling myself with hate
But I just want him to know
That if I had only one wish
It wouldn't be gold
And it wouldn't be another fish
Nor it would be for me to never get old
that one wish that I want him to know
Would be that he may never go

SweetSara, the good old days are the best days! It seemed like you had fun and excitement back then; you still might, I'll never know. But, I like this poem about family! I hope your father reads this one; so the space could be fulfilled in your life once again!
Great one!
