Dear Daughter

 your easy bake oven
 why didn't i bake with you?
 can't go back and do
 the things we didn't do
 you wanted to play that day
 and selfish me
 what did i say
 mommy's tired
 we'll do it another day
 i took you to the park
 i took you to the zoo
 but so many other things we didn't do
 mommy will you play wis me
 oh you were so cute
 even when you shared
 your spitty little flute
 the time went by much too fast
 seems the good times never last
 make a tebby bear
 when i began to draw
 it seemed that a circle is all you ever saw
 make a ceeco you would say
 wish i could go back for one more day
 but in my book of memories
 i really must admit
 of all the funny things you said
 this one is your greatest hit...
 look mommy, i can do magikit!
 wish i could have just one more day
 to play the games we didn't play
 to say the things i didn't say

    Thank you for reading and commenting. I've read some of yours and will be reading more as I find time. My daughter moved out on her own. Shes 18 and I think I'm suffering from empty nest syndrome. I miss her. :(
