Time Flies...

I've made an effort to capture a father-daughter relationship in this poem. :) Not sure as to how far I've succeeded though. Do read the poem and let me know what you think.



She raised her fist
up to him;
with a tender plea
in her eyes.

Too scared to open
her palm;
lest it escapes and flies
away.

She looks up to him
and says,
I have put all my wishes in here
and they're only for you.

I don’t know how a wish
looks,
so I blew a kiss in my
palm.

And am holding it tight
in there...
will you always keep it
with you?

And he picks her up in his
arms;
and hugs her close and
tight.

Kisses the top of her
head,
and says to her, yes,
my princess...

Gently takes her kiss out
of her palm;
and puts it on his beating
heart.

She beams in joy and hugs
him back;
you have made my day,
dear dad...


He is jolted out of his
reverie;
standing, holding her hand
at the aisle.

And a lone tear escapes his
eyes.
how fleeting is the time,
how time flies...

Just before he gives her away
to her man;
he blows a kiss, a teary kiss,
in her hand.

And before he could say anything
to her,
she understands and holds his hand
tight.

I will always keep this kiss in my heart,
she whispers in his ears...
I will always remain your child and princess,
daddy dear...
