for today is my last then i will live like its all i got

why did you go leaving me here
wondering if its my fault
why dad what did i do
you where supposed to protect me
tell me everything would be okay
but its not okay your not here
i try to sleep at night
hoping you will come back
every play for school i look in the audience to see you
but your seat is empty
why dad just two minutes of your time was all i needed
now i look into the night sky saying goodbye in my head
i know now that your gone for good
i know you can hear me in your head
daddy why did you leave me for alcohol
daddy i say to the world
when people ask me where you are
i say you went on a journey but its not a journey where you come back
why did you go

what inspired me to write this is that my dad gave up on my family for alcohol and i believe after i was born he didnt want to be around any more so i wrote this so one day i might understand the truth
