I'd Say

You used to be my hero, my knight, my best friend, my dad. And if I could speak to you just one last time, I'd say "..

Did you know
You used to be my hero?
The one I trusted unconditionally
To be there to save me
And catch me when I fall

Did you know
You were my knight, my shining light?
The one I trusted to be my guide
Through the brightest days
And starless nights

Did you know
You were my best friend?
The one who I whispered my secrets to
About friends and adventures
Because I could trust you
To not judge me for them

Did you know
You used to be my dad?
The one I could count on to scare the boys away
Whenever they came knocking
Because you thought your little girl
Was too precious for them

Did you know
That I regret telling you my final secret?
The one that made you pack your bags
And if I could speak to you
Just one last time
I’d say
“I’m sorry for being gay, dad.”

The End
