For the rest of the world, it is Fatherís Day
But in my situation, I donít have much to say
To a man that refuses to come around
Iíve never seen his face, or heard the sound
Of his voice since he feels the need to deny
The simplest duty, hiding his eyes in lies
He hasnít the right to leave this space
I feel a sense of loss that none can replace
There is no grave to visit, no departed warmth to mourn
He left long before I breathed, and was born
Yet he is alive, behind his thick walls of nervous glass
Cowering behind unlisted addresses and lawyers in mass
My anger gives way to bitter and lonely aching
I wish I could show him the mistake he is making
Preferring instead to stay in his desolate cave
Unwilling to feel, he is a challenge to save
We share so many parallel talents and traits
Drawing skills and a sensitive nature thatís straight
What he doesnít realize is itís no longer his choice
From the moment of birth, I also have a voice
A right to know this man, whoís my biological dad
He chose to create me, but this neglect makes me sad
He is missing out on the special days yet to take place
His hands wonít give me away; Heíll miss the first grandchildís face
Yet this deepening sadness springs from a heart that cares
Happy Fatherís Day to you Dad, though you live I know not where

Thanks so much SunShyne and juniperb!
The compliments were so touching...
I will give the miracle my best effort...I really feel the need to reach out to my Cancer sun, Capricorn moon, Leo Mercury and Mars, Gemini Venus Dad, even if if ends up hurting me. Otherwise, I'm afraid that I'll never resolve my uncertainties about him, and I secretly wonder if the issues I have with the dysfunctional relationships with males I know are colored by his abscence...
