Falling on my own

Left you when I was so little
what do you do with the pictures
of you me and mommy
do you hide them from your new family,
have you burned them or just completly forgot
that you have a daughter out there somewhere.

I guess that you have tried to foget about me,
I think of you everyday and if you still rember me.
you are my father and I love you so much.
Even if you have betrayed me and my mother
I still want to love you and meet you.

All ive ever wanted to have is a father to pick me up
when i fall,
and when mommy falls too.
I have been falling lately
I guess all the pain that deteriates through my body
never reaches yours.

If you never come back to find me
im going to be falling
on my own.
do you want that?

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
