Father Of Mine Dear father of mine weve grown so far apartFather Of Mine8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
We never really did get each other,
Why did you break me and mommys heart?
Remember when you went to rehab?
Remember when you came back drunk?
Remember when you beat poor mom,
and how she begged for you to stop?
Remember when you cried that night,
And promised you would change?
I remember when I realized,
That you would always be the same
With a beer in your hand
A glazed look in your eyes,
Sometimes I would just ask god,
-Please make daddy die -
I remember when mommy sat me down,
She couldnt breathe from all the crying
-Papi has cancer Daniel, your fathers dying-
I jumped up from the sofa and screamed You know hes lying!
But for once you told the truth.
The doctors showed me all the proof.
Why was I so damn cold, why was it so hard for me to get??
I was losing you my one and only dad, with every painful breath
