Sigh!

Sigh!

A Poem by Creepy Swine Guy
"

Time marches on.

"

 

 

There was a time that I would lie on my stomach

and you would drape yourself accross my back as

though I were your pillow.

 

I was your larger than life protector. Where you came

to feel safe, or for a hug when you were sad.

And I was proud of that.

 

I was also the all-knowing font of wisdom and knowledge.

Why was the sky blue? How did birds fly?

Why were some people so mean?

 

I searched my brain and heart to find you answers

because it was my job as Daddy.

 

Now ... occasionally ... you need a twenty.

 

Sigh !

i'm fast approaching this point as well and it is hard to make the transformation from being "the" one to what seems like just another one in the background.......the important thing is to remain "there" for her at all times, regardless........her life will be a testimony to your being there for her.....

:) I like this. It is so sweet, and so true. It's the perfect length, it says everything so well. Nice.

This is an absolutely lovely piece. Makes me think back to when I was a little girl spending time with my Dad. It also makes me wonder how my son will see me when he is grown and looking back on his childhood. Wonderfully written and a pleasure to read!

I was sure I'd reviewed this! I joke with my kids everytime they ask me something impossible (How long will it be before Tenerife falls into the sea and we are all killed by a Tsunami?) 'Google it'. She was relieved to find out that it was only people living in Devon in Cornwall and that she'll 'be dead by then anyway'. I like this Jerry - so much personality in it... lovely.

LOL

Oh my, I hear ya loud and clear. I laughed, but only at the ending because this poem has real love and beauty inside. I absolutely love the first stanza. It gave me a "wow" moment. You aren't creepy at all, friend.

lol You miss it when you don't have it but I wonder if the questions were still given if they would be received as gladly?

My dad tends to look at me as if I have a dim lightbulb running on air at times with eyes saying How old are you and why are you asking me this?

This is a beautiful piece. It's bitter sweet to savor the past knowing the present and future isn't likely to ever be the same. I guess they were right when they said take nothing for granted no matter what because one day your going to miss it ...
