Father Poem

A grown up woman still years for her father's love.


© Raychell D. McCoy

I need you,
To be there for me,
Where have you been?
Why must you avoid it?
Do you not love me?
What did I do so wrong
To make you turn away?
You didn't walk,
You ran away,
Far, far away,
You made me think,
You didn't love me,
You were gone,
My whole life,
And now you're back,
Yet you want nothing,
To do with me,
Can you not see the little girl
Deep inside the young woman,
Crying out for her daddy,
Craving for your acceptance,
Waiting for the day
To hear you say,
I love you,
And mean it.
