“He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can."

Dreams are just wishes that never come true.
He was never there, my childhood is proof.
I grew up without a daddy to call my own.
I don’t care if I’m walking down the aisle all alone.

I do not need one now.
I made it through 14 years, somehow.
I want to believe that you cared some time ago.
But I don’t know how to persuade myself that this is so.

You made me regret every thought of a perfect man.
As if there’ll be one out there ever again.
It’s hard to imagine.
There is no sort of man that is of that fashion.

I don’t know how to put it but somehow I’m stronger.
& forever will I live without any kind of father.
Although, I still love you stranger, dear.
You’ll always be a stranger in my heart, I fear.
