Closure

How could you have left
I was only a young girl
I needed your help
I didn't know much of this world
You said that you loved me
You said that you cared
But once you were gone
I was so very scared

So many things we could have done differently
Things we could have fixed
Most of which
By just one simple kiss

You used to be my hero
You used to be a dad
But after you were gone
I found things out
Things that were pretty bad

You're gone now
And you're not coming back
You know that I love you
But I just have to know
If you got a second chance
Would you still go

For a while I blamed you
For a while I blamed me
But now that I am older
I can finally see
That it's never been a fault
And it's never been a fee
Yes, you're gone
And yes, I miss you
But I've finally found happiness
In which to life it is the key

My name is Diamond Jones and I am 13 years old. Growing up without a dad has been really hard for me. Before I was born my dad disobeyed my mom and the day I was born he wasn't there to hold or sign my birth certificate. Growing up I noticed my dad wasn't there for me and its really really hard. I see a kid with both parents and it gets to me easy...but one thing I'm hoping for is he'll be there to walk me down the aisle on my wedding day.
