When I was a little girl--
I knew a person with my same features
He was like me but a different creature
A man -- tall, broad shoulders but slim
I was somewhat like my mother
But looked more like him.
Everyday was an adventure and time to explore
Shopping, sports, dolphins and more
Never a dull moment with this strange man & I
When he would leave for the day
I would always cry.
Years would go by before we would meet again
My mother took me away from this MAN
when I was only 10.
Separation, anxiety, and loneliness
became my companions.
Love was unseen--
Until I ran away from home at the age of 16.
I took a bus cross country to search for this man.
I went through HELL & back--
NO ONE UNDERSTANDS or understood my pain
that almost drove me insane
but I had to find him in order to maintain.
Who was this man? Who is he? He was the Man I called, "FATHER"...
