Father, Not Dad

I'm sorry you missed out when I went to school the first time,
And you didnt have me to tell you that you that you're all mine,
I'm sorry you werent there to take me to the mall,
And you werent there to tell me I have to stand tall.

Sorry you werent there when I came home that day,
Or the one I ran to when I had a bad day.
I'm sorry you wont hear all the poems I've wrote,
You would be so proud,
And you werent there to lift me on a cloud.

Sorry you werent there to tell me there's nothing to fear,
But then again, you should've been here.

I'm sorry you werent the one to teach me how to ride a bike,
Or the one who took me on my first ride.
I'm sorry you werent there to carry me on your back,
That should've been you, MY dad, The ONLY one I have,

I'm sorry you werent there to hold me when strength is what I lacked,
I'm sorry you werent the one that held me when I cried,
Or tell me I did great when I really tried.

Sorry you werent there to teach me how to cook,
Or there at night to read me my favorite book.

I'm sorry me as a daughter is something you never had,

You will always be my Father,
But you will NEVER be my Dad....

This is how I feel towards my father. I've never met him.
