Daddy's Little Girl

©

Published: July 2008

the day she was born
all my hopes went away
my dreams of being his baby again
went down the drain
now I'm not blaming her
for how he has been treating me
he did that all his own
he has thrown me to the side
like a rag doll lost in a pile of other forgotten things
with hopes that she would bring peace
she brought tragedy
now I'm not blaming her
for his stupid mistakes
he stopped thinking of me when she was born
she consumed his attention
now once again I'm not blaming her
I do not resent her
I just want to present the facts
he doesn't see me even though I'm standing right there
he wont hear me even though I'm yelling in his ear
he doesn't love me even though that's what I'm here for
I still want to be daddy's girl
but in the end she still has his undivided attention

Very well written poem. I know exactly how you feel, I had the same situation with my father being preoccupied with my sister who is 9 years younger than me. When my father was dying from cancer he told one of my brothers he had grown weary of my sister and her children. I was shocked to hear this but it's strange how some things turn out. My sister still doesn't know about this and we don't want her to know this. My sister was always so dependent on my parents and my mother is in her eighties. Since my father died two years ago, my sister and I have grown a little closer. You haven't done anything wrong, you sound like a very thoughtful person. Remember God loves you very much.

This is touching my father has always been there for me! but I do have a little sister. She has all his attention and she is his little girl. But my mother has told me that I am more like my father I have more in common. I know in my heart I am his little angel!
