Little Girl

Once there was a little girl

Who could never lie,

And every time her mother left

A part of her would die.

She lived with a man she called "Dad"

A hardened, broken soul

With an enigma of a past

And love never had.

Only wanted to be understood

In a world full of adults

Who laughed and joked at all the things

The little girl never could.

The little girl grew up to be

a woman warm and true

with the love of God to love her,

a love forever true.
