"Please stay with me, daddy?" "Please don’t leave me again?"

Why are you walking so fast, is it that easy for you to leave me, and I know you can see me crying even if your back faces me. You just keep going farther and farther away not even trying to get one last look at me. I will punch, pull, and push to try and get back to you but will it be pointless, will you try to stop me, if so then what's the point in trying? I can still remember the pain all too well, the heart throbbing pain. As I looked into mommy's eyes and remembered they looked like a web of lies spinning itself. As much as I want I will wait for you to come back to me but how long will it take you to realize that what you’re doing is a mistake? Is the reason you’re not coming back because of all the stupid crap you did in the past or is it because you don’t want me anymore?

Since the day you left and every day since, I dream of your return, and the day you wrap me in your arms and whisper in my ear "I'm sorry for what I did, I promise I will never leave you again, my little cookie monster," but that dream was eradicated a long time ago. I remember all the tears I had rushing down my face as I saw you leave me and mommy behind, to never return.  I feel so incomplete without you, I want my daddy back in my life. I feel deceived, you said 'I would be yours and you would be mine' but you were wrong. Do you still think of me as your "cookie monster" or a daughter you never loved, a daughter you could leave behind in the blink of an eye? I wish you were here to watch me grow up but you know that will never happen.  "I miss you so much that my heart cries for you! Would you please come back to me, daddy? I just need to see your face one last time. Am I disappointing so much that I need to try and make you love me?"

" Hey, daddy even if you don’t love me I will always love you no matter what happens." I bet you didn't even think about I would feel when you no you thought about yourself like you always did. You missed all my birthdays, first dates, father-daughter dances, and you may even miss my wedding, not that you even care. I would wait for the postman to bring the mail and check to see if there was a letter for me but never was I eventually stopped going knowing nothing was there for me. " Well, daddy looks like you really didn't care about me buts it's in the past and is the present now I have a family who loves me, stays with me, and likes for who I am. I don't need you anymore but I love you."
