Dear Father

Long Time Coming...

Dear Father,

Where were you?

I needed you, I needed you there

I needed you to catch me if I were to fall

You were supposed to love me,

But I guess you didn't care at all

Do you know how it feels to be left behind?

Knowing that your "father"

Didn't bother to try?

All I get from you is betrayal and pain

And its sad to say, but

I can't look at you any other way

You can give your love to another,

But I am your daughter, too

And you weren't there...

Does that mean anything to you?!

You may not see the pain that you've

Put me through

But I've grown up.

So,

Dad.

Father.

I have given up on you.

Dear Father
