Father - Poem by Anna Dietze

My father was a wonderful guy
I'm afraid one day that he might die
My father, well, he liked to drink
When he had problems, he never stopped to think

To see how… it might hurt me
No matter what I said, I could never make him see
One night he was drinking, when I came in
And right then and there my head started to spin

I was so mad!
What was I supposed to say, I was so sad
So I yelled and screamed
He didn’t realize it hurt more than it seemed

That night he left
Who else to blame but myself
We both left that night
With nothing else to think about but the fight

I left that night without saying goodbye
Right then & there I began to cry
The more I wish and the more I pray
That I could take back that awful day

No matter how hard I try
Nothing can stop these tears from my eyes
Every night I sit and think
And every night my head sinks

Wishing I could see my father
Wishing that he loved his daughter
Knowing that he will never call
Until then...my tears will fall
