Remember that time,
When you said you would try
to come to my graduation
and you were unable to make
it and I began to cry a river of
The crying, something you have seldom seen.
The last time that you saw me cry was when I was a baby.
Now I'm a teen with important things.
I play sports, act and I am going to do A-Team.
You've even missed my sweet 16
You mother was even there, she traveled 2 and 1/2 hours to come and eat with me for a short while.
You had a meeting.
Sometimes when I feel sad and selfish,
why don't you quit your job
call a cab
come home to visit?
Why don't you change occupations?
You travel too much.
If home is where the heart is, your home is wherever you job takes you next.
You say "I love you!"
I know that behind those words is a Starbucks gift card in the mail.
I say it back because it's what society wants me to do.
Do I really love my dad?
right now, I think it's toleration.
I don't like being bought,
I guess it's the way
my dad shows his love.
You may think I'm selfish
this is not
An I love my dad,
he is the best father a girl could ask for poem.
I'm being real,
something that my father
always told me to be.
