Moments Lost in Time

Do you remember when I was a baby?
When I was born you were so proud.
I was a perfect little lady,
You laughed whenever I got loud.

Do you remember when I was a little girl?
You always knew how to make things fun.
I danced with you wearing mommy’s pearls,
I didn’t know how fast time would run.

Now I am a grown teen,
And I barely even know you.
I never thought life would be this mean,
All I want is the dad I once knew.

The truth is I miss those days,
Because life without you is so gray.

Favorite Quote:
"Late at night my mind would come alive with voices and stories and friends as dear to me as any in the real world. I gave myself up to it, longing for transformation." - Jo March, Little Women

This poem is so easy to relate to. I feel like that all the time. When I was little I was an important part of my dad's life but now that I'm a teenager I matter less and he doesn't really know me. Thank you for writing this. <3
