I’m mad you could never be the father I needed….
And I grieved the loss of you when it did nothing to beg and to plead….
It was painful and for a while I could only think of what you took….
But my own heart told me to take a closer look….
You didn’t know how to love without conditions and without fear….
When I cried…there was no remorse or love in your eyes to watch my tears…
And I know forgiveness is the only way….
So no longer do I wish you to make it all okay….
You were a prisoner of your own pain….
And lost in a false fragile self hidden in vain….
I don’t wish for you to hurt, I don’t want you to be broken…
Whatever words I have of you, let love be the only ones truly spoken….
There may always be wounds to heal….
But love was never something you could force or steal…
And one day I hope you find peace….
The wars and battles within finally cease….
