This is a poem I just wrote about my dad,
and I have no idea why I posted it here.
I have never been good at writing poems,
but I wanted to find a poem to my mon since it's christmas eve tomorrow and I wanted to give her something special. And then I ended up writing a poem about my dad.....
I'm 18 years old and I'm from Norway (I guess that explains why my english sux...) Anyway, here's the poem I really hope some of you will read it, and maybe even like it......

I wonder why I had to wait so long to get that special hug again,
why it took so long to give me that attencion.
I wonder why the only attencion you gave me was gifts,
why you couldnít just give me such a simple thing as some of your time.

I wonder why you never seem to remember what I like to eat and what I donít,
why you canít try to ask me what I like instead of always guessing.
I wonder why you ask me to tell you whatís going on in my life,
why you ask when you never listen when I sit down to talk.

I wonder why you never get mad at me when I yell and say mean things,
why you seem afraid to talk to me in the fear of doing something wrong.
I wonder why I always get mad at you for simple little things that arenít your fault,
why you never get sick of me blaming you for everything.

I wonder why I still blame you for not being there for me when I was a kid,
why I just canít forget about it and be happy for the things you do for me now.
I wonder why I canít tell you all the things I want to,
why I canít be the daughter you want.

I wonder why I need such long time to forgive,
why I blame you for everything.
I wonder if you know how sorry I am for making you sad every day,
why I do this I donít know I guess I just need some time.

I wonder if you know how much I love you....

Wow! Annete this is very good from someone who doesn't write much. I suggest you improve your English more and I write more poetry because, I see potential in your work. You seem to doubt your abilities though.

Anette, this was a very touching from the heart piece.  It reflects the mixed emotions we all relate to.  We have to realize we cannot go back and change our wrongs, so also your dad can't, but every thing from this point on makes a new past, leaving the distasteful one so far behind it's meaningless.  I hope you gave this to your dad as it may be the key to greater understanding.  God Bless.

Wow, Anette, this was so powerful and so full of hurt.  I can relate to this in such a way as might not seem possible, I have had pretty much a similar relationship with my father, a bit different, but also similar.  I am sure writing poetry helps you to get alot out, I know it does for me.  I think this was wonderful and you do have much talent.  Keep it up!  I cant wait to read more from you.

 If you love something, set it free, if it comes back to you, its meant to be...
