Why, didn't you stay?

I am not the way I used to be

I am stronger and wiser as you can see,

Remember my words, my father once said

As he cradled me up and put me to bed,

You will someday grow up with a life of your own

With someone to love you as I have shown,

I will always be here to lend a hand

To help and guide you when you don't understand,

I believed the words he said to me

but he was not the father he promised to be,

He became a man that did not care

unknown to what I’d become, because he wasn’t there,

I often cry myself to sleep

My father’s love was not mine to keep,

I miss my father, I won't lie

Not a single hug or one last goodbye,

If I’d known that his heart was not content

Could I have worked out what he said, and what he meant

He is now just a man, free to roam

Not worrying of his family or coming home,

He walked out of my life and never turned my way

Oh why dad, why, didn't you stay?
