knowing I we be alone

Updated on January 28, 2016

When my day is over
And I approach our home
My heart starts to get heavy
Knowing I will be alone

I have to take a deep breath
when I open up the door
With the memories of your smile
As you're running down the hall
You'd hold your arms up high
With your eyes shining so bright
reaching up on tip-toes
so I can hold you tight

I long to hear those questions
Come flooding from your lips
Like where do apples come from
Or why can't I have nits

When you're a little older
I show you what I write
So you'll know Daddy loves you
When you go to bed at night

      Cute and lovely baby! The poem is so sad and well describing that I spent a long time reading and re-reading not knowing what to put in the comment case. I hope your daughter will read your poetry one day. All the best!

      Thank you so much Forall,

      You hit the nail on the head my daughter is almost 7 now and I have been writing most of my hubs on here for her to read in a few years when she will be ready to understand the meaning and emotion of them.

      So she can have little reminders of our life now and to know that I've always been there for her.

      Lovely poem your little girl is lucky to have a dad who writes so well. I am sure she will love your poems when she is older.
