Scarred To The Core
Connie Kay Hallstrand

I was young, and all I knew
Was what I was told,
You were gone
To start a family
With someone new.
Not only a new wife
Did you take,
But a new family
Did you two make.
Growing up feeling alone,
Unappreciated, and unloved
By the man who wasnít there
To see me grow.
No real communication
Did we have,
Regardless of the reasons why,
Thoughts of you made me cry.
I know what I saw and feltÖ
Alone, unappreciated, and unloved.
Many years have come and gone,
But one dream remainedÖ
The dream my father would want me
And give me the love for which I long.
To my surprise the day had come
One mid summer eve.
He wanted to get together
And our hurt and past he wanted us to leave.
The day came and went
And questions were asked and answers were sent
But something still isnít right.
Why do I still feel incomplete?
Does he see it? Does he care?
How much of my heart away did tear,
Through years of rejection and unanswered questions.
My heart is most precious,
What Iíve thought to be the best about me.
I canít let you in
For fear of hurting me again.
So we can be friends
And maybe someday more.
The pain that happened the day you left
Has scarred me to the core.
