You never were there
Through all of the years,
When little girls need daddies
To quiet their fears.

There were many times
That she wished you were here,
But when she needed you
You were nowhere near.

She once thought you'd come,
But she gave up hope.
And sometimes she feels
She's at the end of her rope.

Because you were gone,
You didn't seem to care.
When most girls have fathers,
Hers never was there.
