But Daddy - Poem by Sarah Selinger

you were there when i needed you to catch me if id fall,
but daddy didnt love me he didnt care at all.
When i was sick you cured me, made sure i was okay
but daddy never did that because daddy went away
you put me in this world you always there for me,
but daddy wasnt there, it was hard for him to see
i was tucked into bed and kissed goodnight,
but daddy was never there to turn off the lights
you held me close to you evertyime i fell
but daddy didnt crack he stayed in his shell
so thanks mom for being, even if daddys away im always here
because i know your here to stay i love you with all my heart
so please dont leave my side
