 POETICAL ME

Dear Erica

In my heart that's aged with time
I still have you always in mind
Though time has ticked away the years
My eyes still see what they've held dear

My child once held by these old hands
Someday will be another mans
Yet held are you though far away
Is you I loved and will always

My sentiment holds back some tears
While writing this it may appear
That it's too late maybe a tad
I've missed the best of you I had

Your childhood days I really tried
To give of me but made you cry
Countless the days I'll never know
Sleepless my nights you I'd forego

Simple things like your first ride
On bike I now ask where was I
Wishing for years that I let go
Birthday parties we failed to show

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Your teenage years we lost contact
Although I never gave you my back
Time and distance would take it's toll
On you once held, I stopped to hold

Young lady now and fully grown
You've made it dear, all on your own
Yet in my eyes you'll always be
Daughter still held, once my baby

Dedicated to my daughter Erica with hope
that these few words will not fall short
as I may have in her life...xxooxx love Dad
