You were my dad that I once knew
But little do you know the pain you put me through
I've grown up and realized
That your life is nothing but one thousand lies
You say that you love me more than I know
But if that were true then why doesn't it show?
I know you have her
And you love her, I'm sure
But don’t forget I’m in your blood too
But obviously that doesn't mean anything to you
I remember when I was the twinkle in my daddy’s eyes
Then he left one day with out saying good-bye
You say moms standing in the way
And all she wants is for you to pay
Maybe that’s true
But what can I do?
I’m your daughter
And you’re supposed to be my father
Does that mean anything to you?
But that you'll never see
And a father you will never be
If you could see the tears running down my face
Still the years have passed you can’t replace
So, dad I've given up on you and this time I’ll leave.
From this day forward I won’t call you dad.

This is so moving, and I'm really sorry if this is based on your own life...if it is, he's missing out on a daughter that has a real gift for writing! x
