(Some little girl today is waiting to wish her daddy a Happy Birthday. For a man who is reading this you have no clue how important you are to her. You are the first man she falls in love with. Take time to be a part of her life. You will always have her love forever and a day. Don't neglect your daughters and sons.)
I sat waiting for you for fours hours
Pretty dress, Vaseline shiny penny loafers, ruffle socks, curls and pearls
I made you a cupcake, macaroni card and my heart full of love
I even made up a song to sing just for you
I sat on the porch telling my friends
"My Daddy and I celebrating his special day"
Every car & bus no you.
I ran to the phone and I refuse to believe you would stand me up
"Not my daddy he love me too much to see me cry and he wouldn't lie
The sun starting to set
My face now wet from tears
I don't care what nobody say my Daddy coming
All the kids laugh and teasing "my daddy a deadbeat"
Mommy shaking her head with frustration in her eyes
I still believe he will arrive
The icing on the cupcake
melting, my curls drooping and I ain't go lie I want to cry
But my heart believes soon my Daddy will arrive
Now it's going on ten o'clock and still no you
Now I am feeling unhappy
Blaming Mommy cause I think she made you mad
I call and get the voice mail
Now I think I did something bad
All I wanted was to say
"Happy Birthday Daddy"
Where are you?
Did you forget about your promise?
Did something happen?
Did I do something wrong?
Tears and fears
Hurt and Pain
Where are you Daddy?
Now days have turn to years
Dozens of cupcakes, unanswered wishes of seeing your face
Twenty- five macaroni cards, now I know you don't want me
You forgot to love me
You forgot I needed your hugs
That I missed you
Empty and deceived
Pissed and disgruntled
I will never love another man the way I loved you
I will never trust another man the way I trusted you
All I ever wanted to do was wish you a "Happy Birthday"
Sad as it seems I await the day when you will show up to get your cupcake, macaroni card and my love
