Despite All Fault

Published: February 2006

Sometimes I wonder if you even care,
because when I need you, you aren't there.

No matter how much I want to hate, you I can't;
Momma won't let me 'cause nobody's a saint.

I know you could be a good father if you really tried;
so, stop, think about it; listen to the tears I've cried.

Tears that could so easily be wiped away,
and replaced with love sure to stay.

Listen, no one can take your place,
even if they had your same face.

I've grown to love you despite all fault,
and that love I will keep within my heart.

Don't be afraid;
my love has never strayed.

I need you a lot;
more than you ever thought.

And remember I love you despite all fault.

You are a very strong young girl. I don't know if it's because he hasn't let you down enough times yet for you to lose the love you have for him or if maybe I really do deep down love my father? But I have so much anger and hatred for my father inside of me that I'm finding it harder and harder to keep control of it.
