You walked away
you took my heart
no choice was given
you tore me apart

There was no good-bye
you never cared
the words I hate you
were all that you shared

With all the tears I've cried
and all the losses felt
you burned my heart
just to watch it melt

My love for you
is always here
but your constant rejection
is what I fear

I can live without you
that wasnt my choice to make
but knowing that you hate me
is too much for me to take

By birth right you're my father
but I'll NEVER call you dad
cause the love you should have given
is something I never had...

Many hugs Echo.
The word hate is cruel, isn't it?
Well written piece.

Now ya got me crying!    It was so beautiful and describes my own father so perfectly. I know just what you mean with every word in this. It definately deserves to go in my favorites folder.

Severn...Thanks for the hugs...Yes, the word hate is very cruel, and when it comes from your own father, its even crueler.  

Toe...Thanks, I tried to make it as nice as possible  

Jess...Didn't mean to make you cry hun, and I am sure it describes a lot of fathers, which, all I can say, really sucks.  It does suck doesn't it?? *hugs* to you

Well, if you knew anything about my father you would probably agree with me when I say, he will never regret it.  He doesn't care!  Maybe his loss, but it's also mine as well.  I don't know, tis a long story and to make it short, he's an @$$, who cares nothing for me and wants nothign to do with me, and wants me out of his family.

Echo, the hurt in this is so palpable.  I feel for you honey.  As you said, it's your loss too.  I pray that someday you will find peace and forgiveness, for your sake, not his.

 It matters not how strait the gate;
How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Echo fathers can be the cruelest things we know. My dad never said he hated me, he used other ways to make his hate known. It took me a long time to find peace, but I did, and you will. Special (((( Hugs )))) coming your way, and one of these too.
