TO MY CHILD

THE DAY YOU WERE BORN
MY HEART ACHED SWEETLY
FULL OF PROMISE AND HOPE
I LOVED YOU COMPLETELY

THE SWEET ACHE CONTINUED
AS I WATCHED YOU GROW
I PATCHED UP YOUR BOO-BOO'S
PLAYED WITH YOU IN THE SNOW

YOU GREW INTO A TEEN
AND THE SWEET ACHE STILL GREW
YOUR PLAYED SOCCER, GUITAR
FELL IN LOVE A TIME OR TWO

I WISH I COULD PINPOINT
WHEN THAT SWEET ACHE GAVE WAY
TO A PAIN AND A FEAR
FOR YOUR LIFE EVERY DAY

THAT SWEET ACHE  I HAD
FULL OF PROMISE AND HOPE
HAS BEEN REPLACED BY A HATRED
OF A MONSTER CALLED DOPE

PLEASE GOD, HELP MY CHILD
THERE'S NO MORE I CAN DO
I'LL KEEP LOVING HIM
BUT GIVE HIM OVER TO YOU
