Never having had my father in my life
My heart has been filled with pain and strife
Longing for my father’s unconditional love
I go through life with no protective glove
No one to teach me what it is to have a man’s love
So into the wrong man’s arm’s I fled
Impregnated with his child, I felt obligated to wed
Now I am destined to be the woman he envisions in his head
My identity forsaken, for the role of mother and wife I have taken
Still I have never known my father’s love
In earnest I strive to raise my children,
In hopes that they will never know my pain.
Once again my efforts in vain.
A father they have but a Dad they lack
When I decided to reclaim self
Another woman he breed with out even a glance back
And still I long for my father’s love…..
