My Little Gal

Contributed by Durango on Thursday, 22nd March 2018 @ 06:29:50 AM in AEST
Topic: FamilyPoems

Seems like just yesterday

We played your favorite game,

Now, youíre starting a new life,

And taking another name.

As a little girl you slept sweetly,

Like you are now on my chair,

Iíll carry you to bed once again,

And put you with your teddy bear.

You grew up in a flash,

From diapers to college,

No more skinned knees

For me to tend with a bandage.

I tried to answer all your questions

Whether serious or silly,

You found your way out of childhood

And now, I can/'/t answer your questions as easily.

Itís hard to finally let go

Of the little gal, whoís been all mine;

I give you away, but holding on

To long memories in a short time.

Youíll start a new life soon,

But if you ever need an old pal,

Iíll always be your dad,

And youíll always be my little gal.

A rating of 120 percent on the Awwww scale.
Tender, sentimental, and evoking many memories.
Now I know why moms cry at weddings.
How different the world would be if all fathers thought like this. In fact, how different it would be if we all had fathers in our lives.
A toast to the bride! And another to the author.

Such a beautiful write.
This should be on a hallmark card.
So sweet and tender,

Parents also please ensure that you supervise your children well when they are on the internet; regardless of what a site says about being, or being considered, child-safe.

Poetry is much like a great photo, a single "moment in time" capturing many feelings and emotions. Yet, they are very alive; creating stirrings within the readers who form visual "pictures" of the expressed emotions within the Poem. ©
