He left me behind,
Not for the first time,
And probably not for the last.
I'm used to this by now,
Well at least I thought I was,
And I thought I should be.
When you have a special bond like that,
Isn't he supposed to stay?
Isn't he supposed to love you?
He says he loves me,
And he'll be back real soon,
As he goes out the door.
I've heard this before,
It's all a big lie,
But there's nothing I can do.
When a person you love moves across the country,
And never even calls,
What are you supposed to do?
Are you supposed to sit and wait for him?
Or are you supposed to move on,
And forget he ever existed?
How do you tell your father that you've moved on?
That you've found a new dad to love,
That he's no longer needed in your life?
Because you can't,
Because it hurts too much.
You live with the pain when you see him,
Because unlike him,
You don't have the heart to break his heart.
So when you say you don't want him in your life,
It is the truth....the painful truth,
But what is one to say...when they want their real father to go away?

This is about my real father...he left when I was 3 and never called me until I was about 14 and all of a sudden wanted to come back into my life, but I already have a dad...that I love very much...and I don't have the heart to tell my real father I don't want him in my life. Thanks for reading guys, be gentle with your comments....thanks!
