Why?

It's just the two of us, mom
just me and you
I know we'll make it
We'll be strong and pull through

My life is really unstable
and many curiosities lie inside
I don't understand the way things are
I need closure as to why

Why did my father disappear?
Did he really hate me that much?
I wonder what it would feel like
to have his hand to touch

Is it warm and loving?
Or is it heartless and cold?
Will I ever find him
as I begin to grow old?

A part of me is missing
The part that belongs to him
I would like for him to love me one day
And complete this missing limb

So, where are you, dad?
Are you ready to take your place?
The least I would expect of you
is for you to see my face

To see what you have created
And what I've turned out to be
Because I know that if you did
then you would be proud of me

So if someday you should return
I hope you read this poem
And answer my one question,
"Why did you leave mom and me alone?"

Hi my name is Mariana and I live in Phoenix, Arizona. My father abandoned me before my birth. He never cared, he never thought of knowing who his daughter is. Everyday I'd ask myself "Why. Why did u leave us dad?" Everyday I'd see other girls with their dads. Hugging them, telling them that they love them. That I never could enjoy that day every year. That special day called "Father's Day." But as time passed I also saw what my mom had been through. How she worked day and night to feed me, to at least have a roof to sleep under. So please be happy that you have your mom or another sibling that cares about you because I too know the pain of having no father.
