Daddy, My Best Friend (by Wena)
I watched you suffer, I watched you sigh,
And all I could do was just stand by,
When the time came, I suffered too,
For you never deserved what you went through,
I took your hands, and we had to part,
God raised your pain, but broke my heart,
If you could have spoken before you died,
These are the words you would have replied,
Tuck, (Wena) this life for me has truly passed,
I have loved you till the very last,
Weep not for me, but courage take,
Love each other, for my sake.
