unknown father

so the day i was born you say that you love me.
but yet the love you speak of i have yet to see.

what did i do for you not to be there.
to have no father its just not fair.

im sorry i wasn’t a good enough child for you.
so please forgive for doing the best i can do.

am i that bad for you not to wanna see.
what have i ever done wrong besides be me.

im sorry for not being your perfect little girl.
but that doesn’t mean that you can take my father from my world.

did it ever occur to you that i needed a father.
one that could, love, hold and protect his daughter.

my life is good accept for this empty space.
your name seems to be a memory i cannot erase.

what is so wrong that you have to lie to me.
what is so bad about me that i still don’t see.

is it my style the way i present myself to you.
just anme it dad and ill do what you want me too.

i don’t want your money, your jewelry, or your wealth.
i just want to know your in the best of health.

so what do i ahve to do to make it clear to a man.
that form since day one still don’t understand.

that is daughter is a young lady who is not a sinner.
and just wants her dad to be there when his loving child becomes a winner.

taking care of myself and dong just great.
keeping my heart filled with love and not hate.

never picked a fight and im sorry if i ever lied.
but not having a father is still the main reason why i cried.

nigh and day, day and night.
its becoming so frequent i don’t even put up a fight.

why should i have to miss out on all those father daughter times.
when you tell me of how you picked up mom with your corny lines.

why am i the girl who has no dad.
why am i the girl who’s constantly sad.

is it becuase i wasn’t the prettiest or even born on time.
is it becuase i choose to write my poems in rime.

well im sorry dear father now i know the whole truth.
i finally realized that the only important children to you are the ones in arm reach of you.
