Left Behind By Dad

I was told you love me
I guess I heard wrong
I lay here in the Darkness
All alone
No one else
Just me
Thinking
Dreaming
Wishing
You still were still here
To comfort me at times like this
Times of Darkness
I need you here to hold me when I cry
To tell me it's ok
To give me hope for the future
But it's to late
Your gone
You could've been there but you weren't
Your were off doing your own thing
I lay here waiting for you to come back
But you never do
Day by day it gets worse
Tear drenched eyes
Shattered heart
You may love us
But do you care what happens to us
If you did you wouldn't have left us this way
I still lay here waiting
Waiting for one thing only
Waiting for my dad to be a Dad

My dad left before I was even born. However, he said when I was younger he tried to visit and talk to me. I don't know whether to believe him or not. I have visited him multiple times, and although I want to hate him, I can't, because he is my dad. My dad is now in federal prison and we talk. We send letters and make phone calls. It sucks because I feel like he was never there for me as a child or a teen but yet I'm here for him as just a teen myself. I don't know why I'm still here with him. Out of his three children, me being the first, I was the one who didn't get attention or love from him, and yet I am the only one who is suffering to see him. I guess I'm just searching for a way to have my dad in my life for once. It sucks because I am suffering for his decisions, and it hurts so much. I can't do anything about it but cry and wonder why I was put in this position.

Wow I feel that's soo much my dad. He pays more attention to my older sister and likes her more than he does me. He helps her all the time with her science projects and school things, and he hardly helps me. It makes me feel sad and ....alone and scared and soo unspecial not cared for :(

Wow that is exactly how I feel. My dad left me and my four other siblings when I was nine. And to tell you the truth he was everything to me and one day he just leaves with no explanation. He's a pretty selfish dad, he expects me to check up on him and call him on his birthday even though he cant even remember mine. I don't talk to him much lately he want to talk on Facebook but its the same. Even though he's not a great dad I love him because he's my only father.
