Memories For My Father

I miss your smile,
your laugh echoing as I ran,
trying to catch rays of sun
between my fingertips.
Your feet shaking the ground,
trying to run,
to catch me if I would fall.
The moments
when the world was ours
for the taking,
dancing in the rain,
falling under the wind,
coloring the sky.
Your hollow heartbeat
never supporting me as I grew,
always
your little girl.

HALLELUJAH! It's about time Miss Maria =)

and why thank ya :) Is there any pattern switches or awkward phrasing? Something feels off-ish around the beginning, but I'll be darned if I ever figure it out.

Maria said...

Contrary to what you say, I really like the beginning of the poem. :)
