Thanks for being there.

It sucks not knowing my dad, I think about him everyday.
But I wonder in my heart if he would have loved me anyway.

I wonder if he's out there, somwhere, just trying to find me.
Or is he sittin on his couch as happy as can be?

He's missed me growing up, and playing different sports.
He's never gotten the chance to take me shopping for shorts.

I wish I could see him, or at least give him a hug.
Or would he brush me off like I was an ugly bug?

Tears roll down my face, when I think of him.
But I also know my chances of finding him are slim.

In the end i'm grateful for at least knowing my mother.
She's always been here for me and thats why I love her.

    Sad but I feel more sorry for him as he missed you growing up and that is his loss. You pen your feelings well. Ask your mother and I'll bet she'll point to you as the greatest blessing in her life. God Bless. Vince

    Hi Cherica I know someone that can help she helped me and maybe she can help you But you have to be emotionally ready. Because the transition is never easy. Just look at what happened to me.Thank you for stopping by and reading my poem(What would my life have been like)It was a very difficult poem for me to write.
