I Am

I am a girl that is talkative and funny

I wounder what this life holds for me

I hear Dad telling what to do

I see his spirits in my house

I want people not to kill other people

I am a girl that is talkative and funny

I pretend that my Dad is still alive

I feel that he is still here with me

I touch my dads headstone and cry

I know he is in Heaven cause he finished his chores of this life

I am a girl that is talkative and funny

I felt my Dad slipping away in my arms

I knew there wasnt anything I could do

I held him tight as he gave up his fight

I softly kissed his head then he began his flight

I am a girl that is talkative and funny

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
