"Father, Please Heal My Broken Heart"
By Janet Treadway

The emotional pain inflicted on us by others can be far worse than the physical wounds we experience. What is the right ointment for wounded hearts?

How can you mend this broken man?
How can a loser ever win?
Please help me mend my broken heart and let me live again.

hese lyrics from a popular song of the '70s, "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart?" by the Bee Gees, can certainly make us reflect on our own broken hearts. How many of you have a broken heart now, or have had your heart broken in the past? You have this huge gaping hole in your heart that was left by someone or circumstances. How many of you feel that this hole can never be filled and that you will be left with the hollow in your heart forever?

There can be many reasons why we are left with a broken heart: the death of a loved one, divorce, loss of a job, loss of status, loss of health, betrayal by a friend, loss of a child and, yes, loss of your childhood. All of these reasons can leave you a broken man or woman.

The biggest sorrow of all was the loss of my childhood and never knowing what a loving father is like.
Along with enormous blessings, I have also had great sorrow in my life. The biggest sorrow of all was the loss of my childhood and never knowing what a loving father is like. I never heard my father say "I love you" or "I am very proud of you." I never experienced what it is like to feel secure, with a strong father in my life, protecting me and keeping me safe. This reality in my life has left a hole in my heart -- an emptiness that I once felt could never be filled.
