A heartbreaking poem from daughter to father. He has moved on and is no longer in her life.
© Heidi A. Hopson
You were my dad that I once knew
But little do you know the pain you put me through
Iíve 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 doesnít it show?
I know you have her
And you love her, I'm sure
But donít forget Iím in your blood too
But obviously that doesnít mean anything to you
I remember when I was the twinkle in my daddyís eyes
Then he left one day with out saying good-bye
You say moms standing in the way
And all she wants is for you to pay
Maybe thatís true
But what can I do?
Iím your daughter
And youíre 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 canít replace
So, dad Iíve given up on you and this time Iíll leave.
From this day forward Iíll just call you Steve.
