What do you say when your daughter asks why her dad doesn't love her anymore?
He has a voice and a phone,but he does not call.
He has legs and a car but he never shows up at the door.
She wants to know what she did to make him turn away.
You tell her that maybe things will get better, maybe one day.
She doesn't get a gift for Christmas, not even a a card.
She acts like it doesn't bother her, but you know she took it pretty hard.
Her birthday goes by and nothing again.
How can a man who was once such a loving dad commit such a sin?
Then you notice one day that she doesn't talk about him as much.
She doesn't notice that he has turned away and she isn't as crushed.
Is that a good thing that she tries to forget her dad?
Or is it just like she is burying her head in the sand?
A fathers love is supposed to be forever - not just until the parents get divorced.
I know one day he will regret turning away from her and he will wish he would have changed his course.
For now I am her mother and her father and my love for her only grows stronger
