a tattoo of me

Updated on September 15, 2012

I love it when your waiting

My Dad at the school gate

Telling me to hurry up

We don't want to be late


For what I never really knew

But it was always fun

Holding on to Daddy's hand

And down the street we'd run


How was your day

You'd say to me

Tell me what you learnt

Guy Fawkes invented fireworks

And London once got burnt


That's right my love

You'd laugh and smile

Across the road we'd dart

A proud smile across my face

A warm glow in my heart


Now I live far far away

You can't get me from school

Home time is fun no more

And Mummy's just aren't cool


So Daddy I've been thinking

And I've have got a plan

A tattoo of me I'll give to you

To keep upon your hand

      Such a beautiful and emotional poem. Sometimes the best writing comes from real events. Take care.

      Daughters just have the most creative ways of wrapping us around their fingers don't they?

      Simba, is Savannah now out of your reach? Did her mom take her away? My heart aches for you, my friend. Talk to me!
