I want people to ask why I wasn’t there at the end
Why I didn’t read a beautiful letter
Didn’t speak through tears on my cheek
I want them to ask why your children didn’t visit like before
Why you weren’t welcome anymore

I want people to know that you weren’t the person they thought they knew
I want them to see you the way I see you without her

I won’t see you again
I won’t be at your funeral
I won’t write a letter
or shed a another tear

Just like you didn’t love me from my first breath
You didn’t love her at her last
You forgot to care that our world got ripped apart
Your mask had slipped
That is how I will remember you

So I guess that’s it then dear dad
