Daddy And Me

I remember my feet and the luscious grass

From above, the sun fueled my smile

His laughter and mine echoed together

Making our trip to the park worthwhile


I remember his face with little lines

But the graying streaks showed age in his hair

My little hand held safely in his

How I'd give anything to once again be there


We lay down beside one another

Cushioned by the rolling slope of the hill

My innocent eyes staring past the branches

Where angel choir and paradise is real


"Daddy" I whispered,

"When will you join the angels up there?"

Watching his eyes water I squeezed his hand

"...soon, but I'll always be near"


I got back up to my feet, skipping

And beneath the heavens I twirled

He watched me with happiness

"Daddy, you're the best dad in the world"

This is a super write, well-balanced, so meaningful. Lots of love here, Mahalarose, the best love Dads hope for...whatever may happen. I would often take both my girls fly-fishing and watch their smiles, also.

This is an excellent write - so very powerful.  You express yourself so well in this piece, and paint such a vivid picture.  Losing a loved one, especially a parent, is a daunting thing to face, and you portray that well.  I pray that all is well during this time -
