Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Words Can Hurt
 
I remember when daddy first had his stroke
right before he died
One part of his mouth had drawn up
on one side
It was hard to understand him at first
when he tried to talk
It was even harder for him to learn
again to walk
First he walked with a walker, Then a cane
then just holding on
He`d hold on to us or just hold our hand
as we`d walk along
He wanted to go to the office , Where he once worked,
walking just holding my hand
As we stepped in the door, He almost fell,I tried
to catch him and left the door slam
He tried to speak , His speech still slurred
pretty bad
The lady behind the desk got up and acted
real mad
She said this is an office , We run
a business here
She looked at me and said take your daddy home honey
he`s had to much beer
She said he can`t walk straight, look he`s
staggering too
She did`nt know him, or what happened because she
was new
No one else was working there that day
She would`nt listen to us,she would`nt let us
have our say
It hurt my dad so much because he did`nt drink
he was a good Christian man
He said lets go home honey,she don`t understand
Daddy was so hurt,I saw the hurt on his face and
I cried
It was`nt long after that ,He had a massive heart
attack and died
I was very young yet I remember to this day
How cruel that woman was the memories never fade
I forgive her though, Because Jesus says to
forgive everyone
But I can still see the hurt look on daddy`s face
because of the wrong doing she had done .
