Everyday you came in with a grin.
Yet we didn't know the pain you hide deep inside.
We just kept looking on.
Some days we could tell that you was down
but we just kept looking on.
We walked past you each day, smiling in hopes it would be ok;
but you kept looking on, hoping we wouldn't see.
You brought her in each day for us to care for and give our love to.
There were days of tears, and other days you had a smile,
but no matter what we kept looking on.
Now you are gone, you had to go hide,
from that man you call a husband and she called daddy.
You no longer can just keep looking on, it would end up a disaster.
You must protect that lil red headed girl, you call your daughter.
We no longer keep looking on, we know the truth behind those dark sun glasses.
