Everyday...

Everyday

Everyday I smile, laugh and play
I pretend everything's okay
 
Everyday I hide beneath my smile
Even though I want to cry for a while
 
Everyday I work so hard to pretend
That there's nothing here to mend
 
Everyday I try not to complain
Even though I'm in constant pain
 
Everyday I want to break the silence
Yet every day  I remain in silence
 
Everyday I watch him slowly die
Yet I cover it with another lie
 
Everyday I live my life
A life of of pain and strife
 
Every day and night I pray
All this pain will go away
 
Everyday it goes on and on
Like a never ending gong
 
Every day I am his daughter 
The daughter of an alcoholic
