A Daughter's Plea to Daddy

"A Daughter's Plea to Daddy" loving arms could not embrace you when you tenderly asked while tears filled sad green eyes as you struggled to breathe and gasped shielded by thick glass now; separated in lonely hospital room as the death chant hovered above your weakened body predicting gloom. memories replay of precious times playing piano and singing together my childlike understanding was dimly clouded as stormy weather reflecting upon our last moments for a hug and kiss request for how was I to realize you'd soon be the Lord's special guest. I wished I had that moment back when Daddy dear, I refused, accept now my apology for then I was crying and confused looking at your photograph in frame I pray you have forgiven me for being so scared as you lay dying...but...I was only three. *For Michael J. Falotico's Where's The Blame Contest. *Sept.20, 2012.

    Linda; this is very beautiful, but also sad. A little girl don't know, or understand the meaning of death. I saw it at my mom's funural. My little niece was just crying and crying. She could not understand why my mom didn't wake up. There is no blame. God bless you and good luck in the contest. Lucilla

    This is such a sad write, a tender poem here my friend! I am saddened for you and your last moments with your father! I understand how you were afraid, especially cause you were three, that you didn't want to hug and kiss him...death is something that is extremely frightening! Don't blame yourself my friend, you were only a child! But I do know you feel you should have, since he is now gone and he wanted this! But it's okay, he understands, and he is looking down on you and smiling!He loves you!

    You touch my heart. I once lost someone very dear to me as-well. She was my aunt, but she was like a mother to me since mom was not around. God bless you Linda. Dio
