You left. Why did you go? It made me cry so much! So Guess what I’m doing? Cursing all the days that you were there, life just isn't fair. It hurt me more when you left, why? Why did you leave me alone? To make me suffer, and cry at night? Why don’t we talk that much anymore? Please, tell me what I did wrong, so I can fix it, and have you back again. Is that so hard to ask? I cry and I cry at night, but you never come, I need a hug, but you can’t give me one. Now the dark  seems so cruel, and light seems so dark, I lie awake at night, my eyes wide open, staring into the dark. I sleep during the day, like a bat. Why don’t you call? Is it because you can’t seem to face what you have done? Well face it! Be a man, not a coward! I think of the day you left, and I tear up inside, but I have to be strong! Why? You act like it never happened, and you couldn’t hold moms attention! I’m not the only one that’s suffering! If you had just stayed, gotten counseling! But no! So face that you left, that you tore us apart! Face it! Mom has admitted it, but you just won’t, she’s already told me! Don’t you know? You did this to us, you made me sink down, I’ve spiraled into depression. Face what you’ve done, for us, for me! Face what you’ve done, it’s over, it’s done with. I don’t ask for more, just to forgive and forget.
