Where Was Daddy

Published on June 2008

Where were you, Daddy, when I took my first steps?
Where were you, Daddy, when I learned to tie my shoes?
Where were you, Daddy, when I thought I'd drown in my own tears?
Where were you, Daddy, when Mommy was working all alone to give me clothes?
Where were you, Daddy, when I watched my best friend get sick and die?
Where were you, Daddy, when I needed a partner for the Father-Daughter dance?
Where were you, Daddy, when I wrote my first song?
Where were you, Daddy, when I sang in front of a crowd?
Where were you, Daddy, when I looked for you?
Where were you, Daddy?
Where were you?

I can relate to this because when my mom told my dad that she was pregnant with me he ran off and has not been in my life for 13 1/2 years of my 14 years of life. I always have hope that he will come around and take me under his fatherly wing. I know that he can raise a child because he raised my big sister who is married and has 2 children and works at a mental hospital. I love this poem. I love any poem that I can relate to like this.
