Dear Father......

Strange to hear your voice
for it`s been so many years
I hardly recognised you
brought me so close to tears

for I walked away from you
after you hurt me so bad
I vowed never to return
never to call you my dad !

sadly you made your choice
and it did not include me
so I closed the door on you
wanted everyone to let me be 

then, out of the blue, you called
your voice was weak with age
still not understanding why
I have flown free from your cage

Dad, this maybe hard for you
but it`s even harder for me 
I felt such little emotion 
only sadness, hurrt  and pity
