daddy

growing up i wanted freedom
i wanted independence and
i sure got a lot.
i was no longer a little girl
but that never stopped you from calling me princess or pumpkin.
i wanted to be seen as an adult in your eyes daddy
and i know that, that was hard.
the day i got the news
that they found you dead
i balled my eyes out daddy,
and like a little girl scared or hurt,
i cried out for you, that i wanted my daddy.
i now know why it ws hard for you to let your little girl go.
its not just that i was the only one you had left,
but the fact that you knew i still needed you.
i had to walk across the stage at graduation without seeing that proud smile.
i now have to walk down the aisle without you there to walk me down it.
my future kids will never meet grandpa...
and this is what hurts me the most when i think of you daddy.
(in loving memory to my dad K.A.H. 12/06/1964-03/04/2010)

I look at this poem, and all I can do is think about my own father. Him and I are at a point in my life where we hardly want anything to do with each other and I want to get out of the house. This poem is looking like a foreshadowing of my life, at the moment. Thank you, so much, for sharing this poem. It really touched me.
