Papa

Remember when you held me in your arms the first time

Only to find you left me behind

Did you ever wonder what you’re missing out

Even sometimes feeling you wanted to shout

Do you wonder what I have been through

Knowing you could have been there too

Dry my tears

End my fears

Share memories

Do those things that real decent fathers do

In the end you made your choice too

Many years I cried hoping to reunite with you

We finally did over time

Once again only to find you left me behind

I’ll never forget your apologies

Don’t you forget now they mean nothing to me

Real fathers try

You chose Goodbye
