Little girl about three years old
Holding tight to daddy
Begging him not to go.
Her little sister new to the world
Curled up tightly without a clue
Of the arguments theirs parents continue to have.
Her daddy left one day leaving a string of angry words
Claiming he didn't care about what happened to the girls.
Mommy soon falls for her best friend
and for the younger child he acts as her dad.
Five years old and she cries to her mom
Blaming her for daddy not wanting to see her.
Now being the oldest of three little girls
And the only one mommys boyfriend wasn't always there for
Shes often pushed to the side and left in a broken hearted state.
Her mother tries with all she has to calm the hurt child
But nothing seems to be able to help a child
Whos abandoned by someone she loves
Six years old and shes absolutely beautiful
Yet she already feels like shes a failure.
She shrinks back and is easily hurt
shes afraid to ask for anything.
Darling girl of whom I love has no idea how amazing she is.
Every time I see her my heart breaks for her.
I can see the insecurity dripping through her sadden eyes.
I wish to help her and to heal her
But nothing can fully heal a broken child
