Little girl

Strangers glance, warm hands, soft kisses, close dance, strangers no more, body explore, shallow dreams, considered flaw.

Smiling eyes, big rock, change of home, wed lock, Big belly, nappies smelly, soft cries, tears in eyes.

New words, first step, little time, no regret, small clothes, big dreams, daddy’s girl now a teen.

Great speech, maturity shown, a beautiful person you have grown, futures planned, time to explore, so now my sadness, leave my door.

Coup flown, on your own, new bills, massive loan, door open anytime, decisions made, can decline.

Empty room, made bed, curtains drawn, standards met, shower free, food bill down, dad not smiling, face a frown.

Safe and well, happy, secure, big world, horizon explore, forever loved, lonely dad, memories saved, smiles had.

Future dreams, both can share, wish you well, please take care, My home my castle, your home too, my little girl forever, forever Dad loves you.

    child leaving home? beautiful sentiment.

  • Yeah my big girl asked the question, I’m not sure what I was to answer, I think she wanted me to object and carry on, but I gave her advise about budgets, and safety and offered her guidance in making the decision hers.
    I wrote this to show her after we discussed it, I had written it a while ago, but I wanted to show her that she is really loved, and would be missed by her dad, but also would always be welcome back with arms wide open.
    Not sure if she will move out on this occasion, but one day it will happen ( x4 ).

    Thanks Rubyjo. xx
