Everything I Do Is For You

He's gone.

My number one support system.

My everyday hero,

He's been taken for granted.

He fixes our uniforms without being asked.

I need him, he'll be there in 5.

He helps all. But no one was there to help him.

He's been struggling with his health.

He holds his chest with a fist, feeling pain

but he finishes the marathon.

He's gone.

I don't have a father figure.

How do I move on?

What was 4, now becomes 3.

All girls.

Mom pretends to be strong, yet she cries every morning.

Mom pretends to be strong , yet she cried every night.

He's gone.

Living off of one income.

I work to jobs.

I go to school.

I go to the store.

I go to my best friend's house.

He's gone.

I do my homework.

I do my chores.

He's gone.

Everything I do is for him.

He's gone.

I'm going to graduate.

I'm going to keep this family together.

I'm going to make him proud.

He's gone.

No matter what I do, I can't bring him back.

I'm going to succeed.

Everything he worked for will not go to waste.

I can do it.

I will do it.

He's gone.
