Waiting on You

May 2, 2008
By Nikki Wilson, Marengo, IA

I’m tired of waiting on you.
I’m finally giving my adieu.
A father you were never meant to be.
How heartbroken you’ve left me is something you can’t see.

I’m finally giving my adieu.
How much I didn’t fit is something I always knew.
How heartbroken you’ve left me is something you can’t see.
During my entire life you’ve been nothing but an absentee.

How much I didn’t fit is something I always knew.
Even with my name on your arm embedded in that tattoo.
During my entire life you’ve been nothing but an absentee.
There’s nothing that’s been so imperfect as father and daughter as we.

Even with my name on your arm embedded in that tattoo.
I’m tired of waiting on you.
This disaster you’ve made has brought too much debris.
A father you were never meant to be.
