Let's walk in the rain.
Come on Daddy
If you could, would you take a walk with me in the rain?
It might ease some of your pain.
If you could, would you dine with me on sandy beaches?
It might cause you to learn what they teach ya.
If you could, would you tell me a bedtime story?
It might bring to you an ounce of glory.
Why can't you get off of your throne of glee?
To become the person you were meant to be.
If you tried it, you would feel the joy,
Of being able to help me become a regular boy.
Come on Daddy, let's try it,
Leave the bottle there, you won't regret it a bit.

This is really sad but reveals the truth too many have to live with every day.
Substance abuse is running rampant in this world, and so many lives are destroyed that one could never take an acurate count.
Wonderful message here Mary Lynn.
