A Childhood Memory With My Father Poem by Rose Marie Juan-austin

A Childhood Memory With My Father

Rating: 5.0


My father
Made up stories
Just for me
So short
But they always had the touch
Of magic.

He made me a heroine
Sometimes a queen
There was a time
I was an angel
But I loved when he called me
The Bird King.

His right hand glided
In the air
When he narrated
His story of
The Bird King.

He said,
"Soon you will have wings
Soar like a heroine
And queen
But always land
Like an angel."

The bond that we had every night
Before I go to sleep
I kept it
In the deepest part
Of my heart.

I will always cherish
His bedtime stories
For it always ended in me
Living happily
Ever after.

This poem brings to fore the special feelings a daughter has for her father, and in a unique way. It made me lose in the world of a daughter of mine who was my daughter hardly for a day of her life. A lovely piece, to My Poem List.

As children, listening to stories is always a thrill. If the story is fabricated around us and if we become the central character of the story, it becomes all the more fascinating. If it is narrated by the father or mother, our interest will be double.....! I can easily guess what a warm relationship you and your father shared. The advice at the end of the story is so charming Soar like a heroine And queen But always land Like an angel." .
