Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine’s daughter and talented model/singer, Electra Mustaine, shared a new video on her official Instagram account and revealed a touching song that she wrote when Dave diagnosed with cancer.

As you might remember, Dave announced that he had diagnosed with throat cancer in June 2019. After seven months with 51 rounds of radiation and nine chemotherapy sessions, he stated that he is free of cancer.

In the caption, Electra wrote an emotional letter about this rough situation and revealed how she felt after her father diagnosed with cancer. Also, Electra shared a song that she wrote for Dave during his cancer treatment, and she made everybody in tears with the lyrics.

Here is what Electra Mustaine wrote:

“I started writing this song the day I found out my dad had cancer.

‘I think I’d miss you if you left.
All the times that you walked out,
slammed the door I’d scream so loud.
Big or small you’re never there,
but I still care and it’s not fair.
All our fights result in pain
tears and fears they’re all the same
deep inside it’s tug-of-war
but I forgive I love you more.'”

She continued:

“I have to admit… My dad and I are so similar. We both can be big smart asses, with a lot of angst, and who ‘sometimes’ think we ‘ALWAYS’ know best… And with that, we’ve butt heads from time to time in life! Lol

But, truth be told my childhood wasn’t exactly as easy as it may seem. Yes! We had it so good in most areas, but I was also a little girl who was so attached to her dad (so proud to show him off when he’d pick me up from school)…”

Electra added:

“Yet at the same time so hurt and angry at him for missing birthdays, piano recitals, and tearful breakups because he was always gone. Flash forward to 21 y/o me, now staring cancer in the face, wondering if he’d lose his long hair if he’d be there to walk me down the aisle, or live to meet his grandkids.

Nothing else matters at that moment. And as much as we could have kicked, whined, and screamed at each other in the past, nothing could ever be worse than losing you, dad!”

A fan named Jeremy added this comment:

“Absolutely beautiful, it had me tearing up. My dad and I have a very similar yet very close relationship too.”

Another fan named Shay wrote:

“Gave me big tears! It’s beautiful and hopefully, these words will make others stop and think about their loved ones, just as it made me do.”
