"My friend, let's not think of tomorrow, but let's enjoy this fleeting moment of life."
-Omar Kyyam


Here I am Dad. And no you can't stop me. Because these bones keep growing and growing they don't shrink. Because this face keeps changing and changing it won't frown.
Here I go Dad. And no you can't keep me. Because this boy keeps loving and loving me he won't hate. Becuase this dress of mine keeps flowing and flowing it won't stop.
But this heart is growing and growing but no it won't change. Here we stay Dad.


The author's comments:
This poem came from the relationship between my dad and I, not unlike any other relationship between father and daughter. He doesn't want me to grow up, and I do. It's bittersweet, in a way.
