Dad That's Never There Poem

A girl experiences pain that her father is so often no present in her life.


© Shana M. Rusk
My dad is never there,
My dad is always gone...
My dad really cares,
he just is never there...
I know he loves me so,
I just wish he would let it show..
I hate how he always leaves,
and stays away for so long..
I wish my daddy would show me love,
for I am his little girl...
Please daddy, don't go....
Mommy always misses you as I do too...
So why keep going, when it hurts us so????

  • This touched my heart, my dad has never been in my life. He has always been in and out of jail my whole, life felt as if he didn't care about me, or love me in anyway! This poem was great thanks for sharing!

  • My dad divorced my mom and forgot how his children might feel. It broke my heart. I was his little girl, daddy's little angel but nope it didn't phase him. A few years later he got remarried and paid attention to his new wife's little sister and forgot about me it ___ this ____ that and he forgot my birthday my dance recital. I miss his hugs, his kisses, his goodnights, but most of all I MISS dad
