My Little Girl

My Little Girl

A Poem by Amanda Naomi

i wish she hadn't died


I found today

A little girl had died

I do not know when

But I wish that I had cried


The devastation in the world

People’s lives are lost

A little girl stands out to me

One that I forgot


She would have found a way

To give her soul to those in need

She could hold more love than most

However small her hands may be


I look in the mirror

And wish that I could see

That little girl

That used to live in me

doesn't it suck when you realize how far away you've strayed from your dreams

Love the way you structured this piece. Made me feel so sad, but then, it's a sad subject. Great write!

Hm yes, indeed it does. :( Lovely nostalgic poem about the loss of childhood - and uniquely written. I like how you didn't reveal that the child was meant to symbolize your own lost youth until the end. Very creative, good job. :)

I really liked this one! Very creative and inspiring, almost. It kind of makes you not want to be alive in twenty years thinking about the little girl you used to be, the one that will never come back. Lovely!

This poem is definately interesting and I enjoyed it. I don't often get to read things ther pertain to the death of one's inner self and the realization of said passing. Very nice.
