Father’s Day

The older I get
The little girl inside me wonders
What would it be like if I had a father

To hold his hands
To hug him
To feel loved by him
To make him proud

I will never know.

He was there in the beginning
But my memory is vague
I have nothing to hold on to

He left us for another family
And never returned
He left me as a little girl
Shattered, confused and empty

So much pain I endured
Still broken today
Having a father that is alive
But not in my life.

Today, I am grateful that my kids
Have a loving, caring father
As I watch my little girl with her father
My heart is full for what I never had.
