I Will Never Forget

©

Published: February 2006

I'll never forget
How I felt everyday
Whenever you were there
To help me find the way.
I'll never forget
All the fun we had together
Those moments we shared
I'll remember forever.
I'll never forget
All the advice you gave me
Without your guidance
I just don't know where I'd be.
I'll never forget
Any of this
Because it never happened
Dad, see what you missed?

When I was 3 my Biological mom & dad got in a huge fight. He ran out the door and. I haven't heard, seen or anything from him for 9 years. Everybody thinks their life is hard. My mom has 4 kids. My 2 brothers, Me and my sister. I'm the youngest. My so called "Lack of a father" will not contact any of us (for 9 years now) and won't sign the divorce papers because he doesn't want to pay child support. I don't even know what he looks like, or anything. I'm afraid to ask my mom because I'm scared she would get emotional and. I love my mom. I hate to see her cry:/ My life has been really hard. But I don't want anyone to feel bad for me. That's the saddest thing a person can do. I'm just saying if you even get to see your dad once a month than just, Take that opportunity. At least your father fought for you Because there are some baby girls like me who has never had a father .Father figure or anything. My momma say I got his eyes. All I want is him. But at the same time I hate him

My Dad left me and my brother when I was 5. He doesn't call me or even come by when its my birthday. For Christmas and My birthday (January 31st) he is going to visit and bring gifts for me. I hope he knows that this won't fix my broken heart.

My biological dad left me when I was 3 months old. He was a crack head and my mom she was only 19 and a prostitute. They were both in and out of jail and rehabs and they weren't ready to raise a child. I guess that they didn't care either because it got to the point where the court got involved and said that either I was sent to another family member who is well supported or I will be put in foster care. My mom was smart enough to give me to my dad's sister who had a good environment for me and she felt that it was right for me to be with her but she promised that she would come back but she never got better so I ended up leaving to live in Indiana and then 16 years later I meet her again and I get to talk to her and my dad on Thanksgiving and now I am almost done with high school about to graduate and she is not ready yet. But I hope that she will be at my graduation next year.

My dad died not to long ago and the pain is still fresh. Everytime I think about it more pain rips through me. I want to cry so much but I don't because it would upset everyone. I keep the pain bottled up inside and let everyone think I'm taking his death well. But in truth I'm dying inside.

My dad left me to when I was 6 or so and I am 16 now haven't spoke, seen, or heard anything about him, and I have a wonderful step dad I love and adore and is there for me but I still struggle with thoughts of my real dad everyday. I just don't get how you can forget about your child and not see them everyday... he has missed out on a lot...yet you think well that's what he deserves but him missing out hurts me too which sucks but it's life and I know when someone you love leaves you it is hard to forgive and its hopeless to forget.

My dad left when I was 3 years old and I saw him leave right out the door. It was the worst day of my life, and the worst part is that I only see him like once a month and sometimes he says " I'm sorry I have to work" so really... I never see him.
