Daddy Why?

You were my dad that I once knew
But little do you know the pain you put me through
I've grown up and realized
That your life is nothing but one thousand lies
You say that you love me more than I know
But if that were true then why doesn't it show?
I know you have her
And you love her, I'm sure
But don't forget I'm in your blood too
But obviously that doesn't mean anything to you
I remember when I was the twinkle in my daddy's eyes
Then he left one day without saying good-bye
You say mom's standing in the way
And all she wants is for you to pay
Maybe that's true
But what can I do?
I'm your daughter
And you're supposed to be my father
Does that mean anything to you?
But that you'll never see
And a father you will never be
If you could see the tears running down my face
Still the years have passed you can't replace
So, dad I've given up on you and this time I'll leave.
From this day forward I'll just call you Steve.

My daughter's father abandoned her before she was born, he abandoned her for another women, and had other kids with the other women, and he has everything to do with those kids but not my daughter. She knows who her father is and loves him with all her heart, and she suffers everyday because he hardly even sees her at all and when he does it has to be secretly so the new women doesn't find out because she doesn't want him to have anything to do with my daughter at all, and she hates my daughter because she's mine, and my daughter thinks it's her fault that her dad doesn't have anything to do with her. She thinks she done something to him to make him stay away from her and thinks he doesn't love also because of this. She is only 6 years old.
