Dad That Dissapeared

I love you, I really do.
But I'm not sure that your love for me is true.

I do not have many memories of you from the past.
You weren't there for long, so any I had did not last.

No matter how much I would cry,
You still left without saying good-bye!

Now you wonder why I feel this way,
By now you should see that I don't know if I can believe anything you say!

I still see you now and then,
And you ask me how I've been.
I think, 'Take a guess!',
'You're the reason why my life is a mess!'

Promises spoken, but never kept,
You're making excuses that I just can't accept!

You left me to be with her,
For my heart there is no cure!

Now you live with them.
I feel like I'm no longer your little gem!

You promised me there would be no more kids.
You still don't understand why I reacted the way I did.

You say you're there for her and not the rest,
I don't care what you say, I still feel like second best!

I try to go along with it,
But I can see that in your life, I do not fit!

I was here first!
But you have forgotten that amidst your sickening thirst.

If you'd give me a chance, I'd like to explain,
That I would like to get rid of all this pain.

Because I'm sick of being sad,
And I'm tired of being mad!

And all I want from you'.
Is my dad.
