Daughter to Father

By: Rosa Malinche


I always needed you.

I still need you.

My heart hurts when I see a daughter and father

the pain is still there

it lingers

you have had a painful past

couldn’t it have been motivation to not hurt me?

Your muneca, tu negrita

I love you daddy

I forgive you daddy

but the pain will still be there

until you return to me

I’ve chased you,

I searched for you

but my love was never enough

I look for you in every man I meet

I’m lost, hurt, confused

but I’ll find you

and I won’t let you go.

From your daughter.
