Caley Asbee

Where were you?
You missed my birthday.
I reminded you that it was this Friday.
Did you care about what you put me through?

I would wait all day for you.
I’m your daughter. Why couldn’t you remember this day?
I guess it will always be this way.
It’s no wonder our relationship fell through.

It was that day I had a breakthrough.
I couldn’t continue to pray
that your addiction to beer would go away.
But now what do I do?

This was the day I knew.
This day would live in my mind on replay.
True disappointment, all I could do was runaway.
I think I would feel better with you out of view. \

I knew this was my queue.
I found somewhere to stay.
It never felt better to get away.
But still, even now, I think about you.
