I never meant for you to see,

the world through jaded eyes,

or feel the searing pain you felt,

from so many vicious lies.


I wanted for my precious child,

to know nothing but true love,

to feel secure and always safe,

from her father up above.


Open your heart and let me in,

I’ll never force your will,

or cause you to feel alone,

your broken soul my love will fill.


Please do this one little thing,

ask me to enter in,

so I may begin once more,

to teach your heart to sing.
