The Poem For The Absentee Father - Poem by Daniel Adams
The day I was born you were filled with pride.
Apparently tears of joy were cried!
The perfect father to you're friends you'd boast.
But where were you Dad when I needed you most?
Where Dad, did you run and hide?
When I'd sat for hours and cried.
Where were you Dad? Where did you go?
Where were you Dad when I was feeling so low?
Why Dad? Why were you so weak?
Why cut contact and never speak?
When you left Dad, life was never the same.
Was it my fault? Was I to blame?
No Dad, I wasn't. I think that was you.
The day you left Mum, you left me too.
No longer the perfect father that you'd boast.
Because Dad, you abandoned me when I needed you most.
