Daddy, Why, Oh Why?

©

Published: February 2006

On those rainy nights you weren't ever there to tuck me in.
I ask myself again and again, did I do something,
or was it something dads just do?
Well, I'm more grown up now and understand that it's not my fault.
But why, oh why?

Now I know that it had nothing to do with me.
It all had to do with one little piece of paper that said
to my dearest daddy goodbye, goodbye.

I didn't want him to leave, but a judge said it was time.

So the next couple of days I saw him take
his stuff, and out of the blue before he
went I gave him a very big bear hug and
he was gone.

I haven't seen or spoken to him in a long, long time.

What was the paper about?
Maybe a bill or something like that.

As I sit waiting for for my bruises to fade and my scars to heal, I can hear you two fighting again. You guys never did hit me, mommy and daddy, but you tortured me with your fighting. It started when I was eight. At first it was scary, when it stopped I thought the fighting was over. Sadly it was only the beginning. I no longer cry when I hear you two fight, I only feel numb, but I feel the bruises forming. If you saw how I look on the inside I would be nothing but scars and bruises. You both made it quite clear you never wanted a family .So then why did you get married? Why did you bring in two helpless children into this world only for them to hear you scream and yell? I think it is quite mean what you did to my brother and I. If you wanted children,then why do you fight? There must be a reason. But from what I can see and hear there is no reason, other then you are sick and cruel people who have kids that must suffer. Now I am afraid of falling in love and it's all because of you.
