"Everybody wants happiness, nobody wants pain, but you can't have a rainbow without a little rain."

You missed so much
I’m almost 16
Time has flown by
There are things you should know
About me
You made a mistake
One that altered the
Way I grew up
I know my life
Is not the same
As my friends
But you could make it better
You missed me
Growing up
You missed the day
I went to first grade
You missed my first horseback ride
You missed a lot
You missed my first trip
To the beach
I don’t want you to miss more
I want you to gain memories
Of me growing up from now
Till the day you die
I want to be in your life
From now till the end of time
I don’t want you to miss
Me going to college
Getting married, having kids
I have always had the dream
Of my daddy walking me
Down the aisle
I want that to happen
Well all have choices to make
You decided to leave
I have learned to live with that
Sometimes I feel like
It’s my fault you left
You missed my first real crush
You missed my first day of high school
You missed getting to know your first
Born daughter
All these years that you have
Not been around
I feel like you forgot
About me
I want to know if you
Want me around
I need to know if you
Still love me
I need to….
I don’t know what I need to do
All I know and have is the way
I feel and a couple of pictures
I don’t even have memories
Because when you were around
I was too little to remember
These are things that
Upset me
Daddy you missed so much

This whole poem is completly true, but about 8 months ago I met my dad again for the first time in 13 years! It's amazing to finally have my daddy back.
