Father Not Dad


Published: February 2006

You gave me life and,
Watched me come into this world
Saw me grow up
Saw me fall

You gave a paycheck and,
Watched me grow up from afar
Saw that I became a young woman
Saw me make my own decisions

You gave me money for college and,
Watched from the sidelines as I entered
Saw me graduate
Saw me move on

You gave your blessings and,
Watched me get married
Saw me move
Saw me start a family

Throughout all this
You never listened
You drank way too much
You were never really there
You never cared what was important
You treated outsiders better than family
You were never really a Dad
You were just a father.
