Scars Of A Broken Family

default ©

Published: August 2008

I've got scars                       
that you can't see               
scars that have been haunting me.
They are buried deep inside of my heart,
feels as if my world has been torn apart.
I've got scars that you can't see,
the scars of a broken family.
I've got a Mother, Brother and a Sister too, except a Father.
That just won't do.
Each day I would close my eyes and pray,
that my Father would come home and say
"I love you, my girl. I am home to stay" 
I then open my eyes,
Daddy's fading to grey,
Mommy holds me tight and whispers
"Shhh, maybe another day"
I've got scars
I wish they would just go away,
soon they fade,
but scars, forever they stay....
