Father

I waited for you
And you never came
You never showed up
As a father                                                                   I’m not surprised
Not much is more important to you
Than you
I am you
I am a part of you
I matter
Or I should
I tell myself
You’ll change
You’ll call
To tell me Happy Birthday
Or you’ll call
Just to call
When you don’t
It breaks me a little more
And a little more
Until the pieces
Make a mosaic
It’s beautiful
And I refuse to give you credit
Yes
You broke me
But I got myself back together again.
