Daddy Never Came Around

Published: February 2006

I saw you once when I was two,
I remember it so vivid as if the memory was new.
It would have meant so much to me
if you would have came around,
You could have been the man to wipe away all my frowns.
Growing up I use to wonder what you were like
Did you care?
Why all my friends had Daddies but you weren't there.
I can't ask you these questions
because you're no longer alive,
You passed away and I cried and cried.
It might be selfish of me for not crying
because I truly cared for my dad that passed
But more for not getting things off my chest I needed to say.
Deep down I don't know how to feel,
This is my way of expression
My pain is real.
