please, all i want is a photograph.
just one to look at and admire your face,
your father and i miss the way you look in photographs,
all i want is a photograph.
please just one measly photograph,
one where your face lights up
and yours eye are twinkling.
just one measly photograph.
allow me one little photograph,
which i can caption with words of love,
words of happiness, not those of pain,
one little photograph.
please just one photograph,
where you still look beautiful,
although your long brown hair is gone and black,
just one photograph.
please, allow me a photograph,
no rosy cheeks, they're muted out,
no pale lips, they're dark red,
allow me a photograph.
please, daughter, a photograph,
just to see you smile again,
please, dear daughter, a photograph.
