I lost my Dad

When I was only 13 years, old
my daddy went away.
He swore he'd always love me,
but he said he couldn't stay.
Days turn into weeks,
and weeks turn into years.
I never saw my father,
he never saw my tears.
He never read me bedtime stories, or tuck me in at night.
he never showed up for my birthday,
but I always hoped he might.
He missed my first day of Junior High,
and all of my basketball games.
He doesn't know how smart I am my report cards are full of A's
and B's
Sometimes I want to call him to say "Hey Dad I'm still alive"
I'll be 16 years old soon,
Will you teach me how to drive, it's almost time for college.
The years go by so fast,
I'm looking forward to my future. But I'm still trapped within my past, I'll guess I'll never understand, did I do something bad? My parents got divorced. But why did I have to lose my dad.
