Abandonment leaves wounds that heal slowly and scars that fade even slower. Usually, the effects of abandonment last a lifetime. Only those who have experienced the anguish caused by being abandoned can understand the depth of this feeling and the fear it causes. It causes one to lose their sense of security. It causes one to feel unlovable and suffer from low self-esteem. The fear that abandonment causes in a person will affect all of their future relationships. Fortunately, confiding in a trusted friend can help a person to work through their abandonment issues and cultivate healthy relationships.

    What you do makes me cry,
    But I honestly can't deny
    That in my heart I truly love you
    You'll always be my only dad.

    And you haven't always told me ..........

    Abused and abandoned,
    A pair of feet walk through a sea of glass,
    Each shard breaking through the frail naked skin,
    A trail of blood and teardrops begin to follow the gory feet.

    Desperate ..........

    How could somebody be so cold?
    Too leave their daughters all alone,
    With out a father in their life,
    Too teach them how to ride their bike,

    I sat there and waited
    Never left the porch
    But you never showed
    It's like you burned my heart with a torch
    I was depressed
    I wasn't very happy
    I didn't hop and dance
    Like I did when I called ..........

    How do you get by, when there's nobody there for you?
    How do you manage to live, when nobody cares?
    You thought you had a friend, and then they disappear.
    You thought you had a good life, and then ..........
