Still Daddy’s Little Girl

Daddy’s Little Girl

daddy's little girl

Time has flown,

on silver wings.

Memories like butterflies,

flitting from flower to flower –

fly through my mind.

Has it really been that long,

since we parted,

since last I saw your face

or held your hand.

But one thing you can be sure of daddy,

I am still and always will be your little girl.

 

Thank you for making my childhood sunny,

for being there for me.

You weren’t afraid of what others would think,

but joined me in my games.

Everywhere we’d go,

oh what a sight it must have been,

the little girl holding on to the hand –

of a tall but happy man.

So you see I haven’t forgotten

and daddy you know –

I still am and will always be your little girl.

The trips mom and I took to the cemetery,

I knew even then,

you were up in Heaven,

but I could still place flowers on your grave.

It was such a lovely spot,

with two birches,

just like from your homeland

and I knew you were there with us,

because daddy –

I still am and will always be your little girl.

 

Time has moved on

and I know you have seen me grow.

I know you love me still

and when I go out into the garden at night,

looking up toward the twinkling stars,

I imagine I see your reflection,

in the starlight glow,

outlining your tender smile

and I feel like your right there daddy –

Because I still am and will always be your little girl.

 

Thank you so much,

for leaving me your creativity

and love for writing and poetry.

I know how much this means to you

and that you’re proud of me,

for carrying on.

I still have so much that was left unsaid,

deep inside of me

and every picture of you daddy,

brings a fond memory –

I still am and will always be your little girl.

My consolation .

comes from knowing,

that you and mom,

are walking the fields of Heaven together.

That you both are there just beyond reach

and that I have nothing to fear.

It’s just that you went away too soon daddy,

so you can be sure –

that I still am and will always be your little girl.

So I send you all my love,

and want to let you know –

that I miss you so.

You’ll always be a part of me,

I’ll look toward the stars,

glowing from above

and give you my sweetest smile,

for you’ll always be my daddy

and I still am and will always be your little girl.

    Rasma, it always warms my heart when I read about the love you and your parents have for each other. This is a beautiful, loving memoir and it is so nicely penned.
