Daddy's Little Girl - Poem by Cathy Chavis
Innocence and purity of a 5 year old girl
Her family, her life and the lies that were told
You see....I would never really know what it is like to be pure
Because I am....just a shameful little girl
My innocence stolen, left here to deal with pain; with no real cure
Searching for someone who would protect me from this shame
Living with a secret and God knows with no one to blame
I want to bring you back and make you pay
You should be the one asking for forgiveness....would my request follow with an unwanted kiss?
I shamefully bury the evils that have consumed my soul
Am I responsible for a monster so cold?
Daddy's little girl feeling much like a woman
My innocence stolen by an ex-navy crewman
Don't worry Daddy your secret is safe with me
Until that fateful day.....I realize I and only I hold the key.
