Moments Lost in Time

By , Turlock, CA
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.

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
