“Not every Queen was a princess that has been.”
Other girls say, “I would prefer a man like my father”,
I sit here and wonder, whether I’d want the same.
Other girls say, “My father is my strength and my support”,
I sit mum, while I retrospect the times I needed you the most.
Other girls say, “My father says I’m his princess, forever and always”,
didn’t I deserve to be a princess daddy?, didn’t I deserve your love?
“Not every queen was a princess that has been”, says the boy I loved,
I could not be more pleased to tell you that he is nothing like you.
He said, “I’ll hold your hand, I’ll stand by you in sickness and health”,
I would like to believe him, but alas!, I recollect you promising the same.
As I sit here, holding my pen, writing everything I could never tell you,
left my life, you certainly did, but please erase your memories I interleave.
– A daughter that once was.
