Daddy

When I see my friends having fun with their dads,
My feelings go from happy to sad.
When I see them hug,
the thought of you comes to my mind,
And I have to make sure my emotions don't unwind.
We were so close before you and mom got a divorce,
The last time you were REALLY there was when I fell off of Tonk the horse.
I bond with Dana's dad and Jena's too,
So maybe I wont have to think about you.
I miss you dad and cry at night.
I worry about you, and hope things are alright.
I lie in bed and think,
does he worry about me?
The job of parenthood has set him free.
I can't believe you had the guts to leave,
neither can the rest of the family because secretly, we all greave.
Maybe if you were here I wouldn't be crying right now,
But you'd only come back-
Some way, Some how.
A girl my age needs her dad,
It's not suppose to be like this- it's too sad.
I still can't believe you didn't invite me to your wedding-
It must have been expensive,
the cruise and the pretty ring.
And France and New York, and any other fun thing.
You pay for fun trips but not a plane ticket to come see me get surgery or run in a track meet.
Speaking of track, I had my first meet.
I got first place,
I've got fast feet.
You didn't call that night to see how it went,
Or how I was,
Or how my day was spent.
I wish you'd call me everyday,
That's the least you could do,
the least you could pay.
I hope by now you've shed a few tears,
Because that's what i've been doing for the past nine years.
