My Daughter


The pebbles of raindrops
on her bare skin
Got her excited as she make
this childish glee

She wink at me and starts
singing some old lullaby
She was the feminine version of me
Sweet, cheerful with a crown of innocence on her head

Come on little cutie
I called out to her
Please daddy let me stay
a little longer

I wouldn't get sick on you
She smiled like the sun
rises in her eyes
singing like a sparrow

I went inside to fix her
a cup of coffee
Then this loud sound from
the heavenly body got me startled

I reach for the door
pulled its handle and fast
Only to see my cherub
laying on the ground lifeless

She was caught by lighting
I held her in my bosom
and weep like a baby
God must send an angel
to bring back my cutie

She was a cherub
such a sweet little thing
Smiling like the sun rises her eyes

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

"Oh Day of Fire and Sun"
by Sara Teasdale

Oh day of fire and sun,
Pure as a naked flame,
Blue sea, blue sky and dun
Sands where he spoke my name;

Laughter and hearts so high
That the spirit flew off free,
