You know my heart better than I know myself.
So you know why I have this reluctance to trust you.
Why I can’t seem to embrace your love for me,
why I need to hear it over and over again.
And even then, it’s hard for me to believe.
I wish I could dive right into your love,
in the same way, a girl throws herself into play.
Head first – no reservations.
Oh to be able to!
I will never stop thanking you for that moment.
That moment when I knew.
That moment when you confirmed your love for me.
Oh, the joy bursting in my heart.
How could I’ve believed all those lies?
Lies about you.
You will never leave me. Never stop loving me.
No matter what.
I thank you for loving me.
I thank you for letting me feel it in my heart.
How could I have doubted?
And yet, I know I need those reminders.
I need to hear it over and over again.
But that’s me – I’m only human.
You’re not. You’re my father.
Thank you for understanding. For being there. Always.
