To the Father of an Abandoned Child

Sat, 11/30/2013 - 17:57 -- Folly14


Dearest daddy we were always so close

Your magic tricks and games made me love you the most

But I was only three when I would finally see

What you were doing to mommy and when you left me

Mommy always had a smile so I never could tell

That all this time you had put her through hell

Why did you do it daddy? Was I never enough?

I guess it was the drugs that always made you so tough

It was all left to mommy to clean up your mess

But sadly she couldn’t stop you from doing the same to all the rest

There is no way to justify what you have done

Even though growing up with mommy was so much more fun

So daddy, I hope that where ever you may be

You can pick up the newspaper and you can see

My softball and volleyball and volunteer service too

Everything that I have accomplished without help from you
