Thanks for leaving me
Because now I’m scared and all alone
Thanks for smiling
To help hide the truth
Thanks for running away
Because now I know it’s better to face everything
Thanks for setting a terrible example
Because now I know what not to do
Thanks for fooling me
So I would love you for ever
Thanks for being you
Because now I cry without you here
Thanks for making mistakes
Because now I realize how one thing changes everything
Thanks for leaving me
And letting me sit here shocked
With nothing but tears in my eyes
Thanks for being you
And making me laugh
Thanks for being you
And letting me treasure family time
Thanks for being you
And letting me realize who you really were
Behind the mistakes and bad decisions
Thanks for being you
You have taught me how to be strong
Thanks for being you
You have showed me what family looks like
