"We could be a beautiful, miracle, unbelievable, instead of just invisible" Taylor Swift :)


When I was a little girl, I would wish for you to come
I would wish for you to hold me, and never let go.
When I was a little girl, I dreamed of that one dance,
I dreamed that you'd show your love for me, but deep down I knew, you'd never take that chance.

as I grew, I dreamed, wished, believed.
as I grew, I hope that, that one dance would be of reality.
as I grew, I pictured you holding me, and never letting go.
as I grew, I dreamed, wished, believed.

My mom says some day you'll come to your senses, and realize how your choices bring tears to my eyes,
how every thought of you causes me to cry.
Every time she says these such things, I find myself hoping and believing.
I find myself wishing you'd feel the pain you bring to me.

but as I've grown I've realized, I don't need you in my life.
as I've grown I've realized, there's no need for me to cry.
as I've grown I've realized, just one dance can't change a life.
as I've grown I've realized, letting go will set me free.
as I've grown I've realized, there's no need for me to dream, wish, believe.
With or without you I'm gonna still be me.

When I was a little girl, I would wish for you to come.
When I was a little girl, I dreamed, wished, believed.


The author's comments:
I wrote this poem to express my feelings about how my dad is never around. When I was younger I would get so upset when he would cancel plans with me or not show up. This poem shows how I've changed from then to now, and how I've come to accept the situation and have moved on.
