For a long time I’ve been gone.
I thought I was there, just like I thought you were…
I made excuses as to why your shoes wasn’t there, I made no sound when I heard your absent voice call my name.
Where were you dad? Where have you been I want to come with you.
Do you need me to walk a little faster to match your pace?
Please wait for me.
Do you need me to pretend as though you are just a friend, to take the responsibility off your shoulders? I will be your mini best friend.
Dad, I got a boyfriend last Tuesday.
He broke my heart.
Why aren’t you saying anything?
I won’t tell anyone that I saw your ghost, I won’t tell your wife… are you married?
The math question was hard, do you find numbers hard too? Is that a gift I got from you… did you and mommy buy me toys?
We’re the dolls pretty like me daddy?
You’re quite again…
I know I am talking too much.
Do I remind you too much of my mommy?
How do I get a husband? I would like one when I get older.
Let me sit next to you daddy.
Would you like to walk me down the aisle?
Daddy look at me!
Are you sleeping?
Do you have to go again?
Daddy please, just this once… don’t leave me.
It’s been a while since we talked.
I hope you’re okay, I hope you’re doing fine.
I hate you daddy!
Wait don’t go, I didn’t mean that.
Please stay in my heart, I know if I shut you out you will be gone. You would be too gone to come back home.
Daddy I haven’t bothered you in a while, can I write you a letter?
I have a pain in my tummy, could you rub it better?
Does my writing shows that I am your child?
Is it too different from yours?
Do you love my sister more than…
Please save me.
You see my mind does this thing where it… daddy!
I wasn’t there when mommy called me. I wasn’t there when they bullied me, I wasn’t there in class daddy. I was somewhere else, I was with you.
Everybody always leaves.
I sing too daddy, would you like to hear it?
Mommy said you could sing… can we sing together daddy?
Daddy please hug me.
Please cry with me.
Show me that you love me.
Are you listening?
It’s okay daddy, I forgive you.
I wanted to tell you that I finally found my husband.
He’s nice to me daddy, he’s really nice to me.
I ended the cycle, he’s not abusive daddy.
I finally found one who isn’t.
I bought the dress you didn’t help me choose.
It’s okay daddy, I just want to say…
I love you.
