Daddy Said


as a child i used to think,
what would i be
when i grow up?
i asked daddy.
he would smile & gently pat my head.
then pulling his hand i would plead
'answer me daddy. answer me.'
looking at me lovingly,
daddy said
'be what you wish,
you're free. i leave you unleash.
no boundaries for you dear.
be what you want.
you choose your favourite future.'

    Awwwwwww! ...what a poem, such a lovely, excellently penned poem dear... I said to my daughter one day, I won't live your life for you, but I will be right here when you need me and give you the support you need, your father is a good man. He raised a good lady too, never disappoint him.
