To My Second Pop
Never thought I'd ever say the word "pop" again, because me and mine don't get along, so he gets treated like a friend.
Okay maybe I just lied, but him and I don't even speak, apart of me like really hates him and I'm sure by now he sees.
It's a shame I feel this way, but i didn't use to long ago, I used to be a Daddy's Girl, and now the world will never know.
He tells that he hates me,he don't love me, I'm not his, he says I'm truly nothing like him or his other 7 kids.
This all coming from a man who was really never there, his absence made me hate him, he missed 10 freaking years.
It may not seem like alot but believe me it is, the times I needed him the most,
or keep me safe when I felt scared.
The last time I saw him; young, naive girl age 9
The bond we built, fictional as once upon a time
I realize I played myself because he never did deserve it,
so I completely shut him out, simply for that purpose.
He was never a "REAL" father ,and I thought I'd never see, what a real father was or what a real one would be... like til I might you.
You truly are a blessing, and truly kind-hearted too, you're truly someone special,and I appreciate everything you do.
You treat me like I'm blood, and that means so much to me, making sure I'm comfortable, and I feel welcomed, feeding me.
Not only that but you always show me love tell me you love me, and your the same when peeps around, you keep it real ya never phony.
And If ever I may need something regardless of what it is, doesn't matter big or small, you don't hesitate to give.
That shows me you really love me, and I love you just the same, thought I'd never feel the love from a "Pop", but my heart's changed.
You've done things for me that my Pop would never do, and I'm just happy I had the chance of meeting someone such as you.
I feel if I ever need to vent or if I ever need a shoulder, you won't hesitate to help,
or give wise words to keep me stronger.
If tears showed how much I'd miss you, I'd own a endless sea, so I'd never wanna lose you, and in my heart you'll always be.
Just as much as your apart of Dave, you too are part of me, and look you'll always be my "Pop", and I mean that with everything...
I love you da pieces Pop and I just thought I'd share with you, a poem from the heart, and I hope you like too.
-Love Always Shaii
