To Hold Her - Constanza

To hold her in my arms once more
	So we can squeeze each other tight
	Before me kissing her good-night

To love her like I did before
	With all of my heart and my soul
	Giving her everything, my goal

To see this child I did adore
	With the proud father’s sparkling eye
	Which now at night I simply cry

Before she went to heaven’s door
	At far too innocent an age
	Leaving me on an empty stage

Every night now I do implore
	On bended knee before my bed
	You should have taken me instead

To hold her in my arms once more
To love her like I did before
To see this child I did adore
Before she went to heaven’s door
Every night now I do implore

    Joe, Congratulations on your placement in Andrea’s “Can you Constanza? Contest.” There were so many really amazing entries we had a very difficult time deciding. We had to go by who followed the form best, and whose poem was most creative. I spent 4 and half hours going over the poems and Andrea, a lot longer. Thank you so much for your wonderful entry Mahalo, Connie
