A Fatherless Child

You made me, you left me, you never even cared
I was your second child and you still weren't prepared
On the lonely nights was i was sad
I found myself asking, where is my dad?
You weren't there to wipe my tears
You were gone throughout the years
When I was lonely you weren't there
It must be because you don't care
I could never forgive what you have done
After all these years you have officially lost a son
Without a father I was lost and confused
If being a parent were a contest you surely would lose
Call me or write me you've never done
How could you have done this to your own son
You made me, you left me, you never even cared
Your reason I used to be scared
You never called, just to say hi
Not even to say goodbye
Years and Years passed with little words
The words"I love you son" were never heard.
