I was just a baby
When you stopped being my dad
You had me once a month
For only two days
But on those two days
Somehow I had to call you
I already had a new daddy
So I resisted
Is that why you gave me up?
Why you agreed to let me go?
After that
I didn't have to call you
I didn't have to talk to you
I did, but I called you Matt
Is that why you moved away?
Why you stopped calling me darling?
Even after that sting
We kept talking
Except once
I didn't know what to say
I didn't reply
Is that why you said "my family"?
Why you stopped emailing me?
Now I have a mom, dad, and sisters
The hole is almost filled
Is that why
You don't call me daughter?
Why you don't love me anymore?

Well, obviously, this is about my dad. I guess I have a lot more bitterness about him than I thought I did
