All she really ever wanted was a daddy


-As she gives herself away night after night…. guy after guy, boy after boy, man after man.. she crys…

Because she knows
All she really ever wanted was a daddy.

-As she dances, she can’t seem to shake away the shame. No one understands. All they see is her body uncovered and open for all to gaze upon. And as she walks backstage..she crys..

Because she knows
All she really ever wanted was a daddy.

-As she sits there while he flatters her and compliments her…telling her she is beautiful, telling her she is hot, telling her he needs her, she looks away. And as he begins to feel up on her and unbutton her jeans, she just can’t seem to push him away. The attention feels too good to say no to.
And at last as she lays there, hearing him snore. The tears roll down her 14 year old face as she crys..

Because she knows
All she really ever wanted was a daddy.

-As she takes a long drag of her cigarette, she watches the busy street below her balcony and she thinks to herself…She has done pretty darn well for herself. Her education, her career, her expensive condo, her expensive car, her diamonds, her designer clothing. And as she thinks, she crys..

Because she knows
All she really ever wanted was a daddy.

-As she yells and screams at her small children, out of anger, out of frustration, for nothing really,
they run to their bedrooms. And as she hears their small whimpers. She also crys, her sobs uncontrollable.

Because she knows
All she really ever wanted was a daddy.



Some daddy-less girls might admit it freely.
Some daddy-less girls might only admit it when they are alone.
Some daddy-less girls might never believe it. ..

That deep down inside….in the darkest corners of her soul.
It’s there…….and it hurts.
And yes, honestly it sucks.

From what??
the loneliness.
the sadness.
the emptiness.
the horrible feeling of abandonment.

GOD is the
Father to the fatherless…
~Psalms 68:5

In other words:
** Daddy to the daddyless! **

I know how it is to be far from being a little girl but still at times…sometimes.. just wanting a hug from my daddy.

My heart breaks for all these daddyless girls… and not only for the ones that never had a dad or never knew their dad, but for all those that(like me)did have a dad at home BUT still never experienced the real, PURE, and true love that every dad should undoubtedly give.

<I guess I could say my dad least sometimes..but…well…I’ll leave that for another post.> 😉
(to be continued..)

You are NO accident.
You are NO mistake.

I can prove it to you:

*By You I have been upheld from birth; You are He who took me out of my mother’s womb.
~Psalms 71:6

*For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb.
~Psalms 139:13

And my favorite:

*”Before I formed you in the womb I knew you..”
~Jeremiah 1:5

Are you longing for a daddy?
He’s actually longing for .. you.

I AM the Father to the fatherless.

    • Words2sketch, Thank you so much for reading and for your msg.

      Yes, Only God can truly fill up the void that these precious girls/women have in their very broken hearts. ♡
      I pray they would let Him. And their search(for love, worth, and security) would be over! ♡

    • ..Thank you Divine. ♡ I very much wanted to cry while first writing it. The pain and sting of being daddyless is just extremely saddening. May God continue to help this generation. A sad part is sometimes the ‘cycle’ just continues and continues. 😦 I am so very thankful for the men that DO rise up to the wonderful challenge of being a real daddy! God truly bless them!

  1. This was so honest and beautiful. I am SO glad you took it here —– “GOD is the Father to the fatherless… ~Psalms 68:5 ”
    That was perhaps the climax of EVERYTHING you said! You always seem to know just how to put a finger on those “real” issues. God bless you!!
