Fearless- It isn't simply not being afraid, its being afraid but jumping into your fears anyway

I am without a Dad and still happy
I wonder how much he really loved me
I hear him say 'I'm sorry'
I see his face but don't recognize it
I want him to feel the loss even more
I am without a Dad and still happy

I pretend it doesn't hurt me to not say 'I love you Daddy'
I feel like he shut me out
I touch his face as a baby and he turns away
I worry he will try to get me back
I cry when someone brings up their dad as being 'the best'
I am without a Dad and still happy

I understand it was his choice
I say I don't need a Dad
I dream about making him see what he's missing
I try to be a strong girl and not show weakness
I hope one day he'll get to see how hurt I was
I am without a Dad and still happy
