My Daughter of time

My Daughter of time


My daughter of 1989
The face that etches in mine
Can you not see my pain
Plastered on my sleeve

Why have you turned from mine
The time capsule so rare
Love define in our hearts
Forgotten on some hill 

Please turn back 1989
Being there I am secure
Endure the emotion of play
Please turn back and stay

My Daughter of 1989


Athena Charlotte

    This is so sweet and also sad to read, you conveyed your emotions well with the passage of time. With time comes the inevitable unknowns. I loved reading it and wish you the best, and congrats :) on being featured this week. It was well-deserved. Love, Amy

    Beautifully sad poem. I never thought that free verse could make so much sense and be so poignant at the same time. I sometimes have a hard time with understanding free verse; but this is awesome!
