Forgotten, left behind abandoned forgotten about, I meant nothing to you.
You left me to fend on my own, to grow as the man of this home, without your presence I learned every lesson all alone.
Blinded by the absence of a father who was never there, searching for an approval I know that I'll never find.
I never knew you, I didn't even know your name, the only thing you taught me was how to be the man I never wanted to be.
You taught how to become the man I don't want be.
For so long I longed for your love, wanted your hands to guide me along, but you were never a father, you were just another stranger.
I won't let your absence burn hole in my heart, a child always looks up to his father, but I'll just keep on looking up ahead.
For years I thought I had missed out, but you missed out on the man that I've become. You missed out on the man that I've become.
