Abandoned

Like many little girls,  My childhood was a lot about playing with my dolls,  Tiny handmade dolls - an adorable family,  They had a tiny house, which My Dad made for me,  A house made of wood, with balconies, and railings, and stairs, which enthralled me, Which fascinated me so much, I thought, My Dad was the most powerful man on Earth. I don't have that enchanting doll's house any more,  It was lying uncared for, in a corner after I left home,  Somebody thought - it was occupying too much space,  Nobody played with it any more,  This should be gone,  And...it was gone!  An unequaled, unrivalled, ultimate house in an imaginary world of a young girl who visualized the world as flawless as her father's vision and creation,  With tiniest details, and tenderest wishes to hand in,  A Perfect World from a Perfect Father to his Perfect Daughter!

What we would give to still have some of our childhood things, but you've shown we still do - we store them within memories, sometimes perhaps better than they were.

Such heartwarming words dear Mala! You bring back memories from my own childhood. Alas! After we leave, most of those belongings might be sad in a corner. Congratulations on your win. Blessings and love :)

Thanks, Aditi. This poem brings a lot of memories of childhood and my father. It was for him on Father's Day!

Dear Darlene, Yes, probably I was lucky as a little girl. My Father made that doll's house for me. I am remembering those wonderful memories, especially today. Your comments touched me!

The power of a homemade dollhouse to unleash the power of the imagination and to imbue in a young girl a sense of home. This is a wonderful tale of your life, and it displays the love your father had for you and you for him. Best wishes in the contest and many blessing to you, my friend ~ John

Dear John, I am always so touched with your thoughtful comments. I had a special bond with my father - perhaps many people do. He is the one who instilled the love of writing in me, and encouraged me to continue even in adverse situations. Thank you for your kind words. Best wishes, Mala
