Things I've Never Told You

There’s so much I’ve never told you,
I never told you i still love you even
After you left your family behind
I never told you that i cried every night for you

I never told you i prayed and prayed and prayed that
You would come back home
I never told you i wish our phone calls were longer,
We talk for 5 minutes like we are on a timer because you
Don't want to speak

I never told you that “how was your day?”
“ that’s good, i got to go” isn’t good enough for me
I never told you how much you hurt me and
How i will never recover from it

I never you that when i was sitting alone
I looked over and saw your hand raise up
And saw the fear in my mom's face as you began
To beat her

I never told you that knowing i'm not going to have
Someone walk me down the aisle, tell me if my boyfriend
Is worth it, i'll never have that father figure that i'm suppose to have

Now instead of a father figure i have just another person in
My life.

I was inspired to write this piece because i've never talked about my father and what has happened when I was little and I felt that because know that i'm older I can say what I felt and tell everyone what happend.
