I’m just a young woman with a disability,

Who has grown up without her father.

Birthday's, Holiday's, School event’s as well as Doctor’s appointment’s you weren’t there.

When I hit all the important milestones in my life you weren’t present to witness them.

when I experienced my first real relationship you weren't there to sit him down and let him know what you expected of him.

I told mom that I would love it if you could come up to my school for Career Day but you chosed not to accept the invitation.

Never once have I ever heard you tell me that you were proud of the accomplishment’s that i made.

The days you did show up I felt as if you were emotionally detached from me.

All I ever wanted was to be daddy’s little girl.

I used to sit in my room and silently cry wondering to myself.

Why doesn't my daddy ever come around?

Is it because of my disability?

My hope is that the father daughter bond I dream of would soon be realized one day.
