Daddy, Where Are You?

daddy where are you?
who are you?
i dont know you.
your a stranger to me
you missed my whole childhood.
thats once in a lifetime opprotunity
but you missed it.
i really wanted you here
i wanted you to watch me dance
and play soccer
but you werent
can i ask you a question?
why?
my mom said that you couldnt even remember my birthday
if you cant remember that then how could u remember me?
i guess i will never know.
well daddy this is all i have to say
you will always be my father but you will never be my dad

My Mirrors Past

I look into the mirror
and stare at this face.
Life has gotten dearer.
Time has left its trace.

What happened to the innocence?
Where is that youthful glow?
This isn't the mirror I saw myself in
So many years ago.

Innocence became reality.
Youth gave way to mature
Now I wish I had the mirror

Mirrors show an image
We may not want to see.
The way we are today.
How we used to be.

A List Of What To Expect

This is a list
Of what to expect
From me to you
With love and respect

I owe you an ear
Because you always pay attention
I owe you a shoulder
Because on yours lies my affection
I owe you a hand
You always help me out
I owe you advice
Of that there’s no doubt

I owe you respect
Of that you’re full
I owe you trust
With my secrets you are cool
I owe you knowledge
You have taught me so much

For Every Child

For every child who cries at night
Alone with shame in pain and fright

For every child who wants so much
To only feel a gentle touch

For the beaten child, who cries in pain
Whose tears run silent, like the rain

For the child used to satisfy lust
Who never learns to love or trust

For the child taken from her home
And made to feel so all alone

For the child whose home is just a shell
Where life becomes a living hell

For the child who smiles but cannot feel
Because of scars too deep to heal
