*This is a poem about how I grew up with my earthly Daddy, and about how my heart still can feel this way now, when I try to give him affection, etc. (This is not a reference to how I feel about God in any way). I thought I would try to empty out my feelings so that others, who have or currently are growing up in this kind of situation, even those adults who have a relationship like this with their Dad, will know that there is always hope and that they're not alone.

ďDADDYĒ

FOR AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER
IíVE TRIED TO GET CLOSER TO YOU
THOUGHTS OF HOLDING YOUR HAND AGAIN
PLAY REPEATEDLY IN MY MIND
WE WERE THE BEST OF FRIENDS
WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL
I THOUGHT WE SHARED A BOND,
LIKE NONE OTHER IN THE WORLD
BUT THEN I STARTED TO GROW UP AND
EVERYTHING CHANGED
OH-I DONíT UNDERSTAND
WHAT WENT WRONG, TO THIS DAY

TELL ME HOW
HOW DO I GET YOU CLOSE TO ME?
SHOW ME NOW
IS THERE SOMETHING WRONG WITH ME THAT YOU SEE?
DONíT YOU KNOW
HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU?
WILL YOU EVER LET ME IN?
(PLEASE)-OPEN UP YOUR HEART AND LET ME BE
YOUR LITTLE GIRL, AGAIN

MY HEART BREAKS ALL OVER AGAIN
WHEN I THINK ABOUT THOSE TIMES, BACK THEN
AS I TRIED TO GAIN ACCEPTANCE
IN THE ARMS OF YOUR AFFECTION
YET, YOU SEEMED SO VERY DISTANT
ALWAYS ANGRY WITH THE WORLD
AND I WONDERED WHAT COULD BE SO WRONG
WITH ME, YOUR LITTLE GIRL?
OH AND SADLY, SOMETIMES I ASK MYSELF
DO YOU REALLY LOVE ME AT ALL?
I CANíT EVEN HUG YOU
CUZ YOU HOLD YOURSELF SO TIGHT
WHAT ARE YOU AFRAID OF?
WILL YOU EVER LET ME TRY?

OH DADDY
I KNOW YOU LIVE A LIFE THATíS FULL OF
CRAZY PAINFUL DAYS
BUT IS THAT ANY REASON, TO INSULT AND CALL ME NAMES?
IíM NOW A YOUNG WOMAN, WITH MY OWN GOD-GIVEN MIND
WHATíS IT GONNA TAKE
FOR YOU, TO STOP
PUSHING ME ASIDE?
(JUST)-BREAK AWAY YOUR PRIDE
HOW MANY TIMES MUST I CRY?


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Very moving. Great work! God Bless. Many people find it hard to show affection...I know this - I'm one of them. Sincerely, Dan Blankenship
