Age Group: Adult


Into your arms at birth I went
Wrapped in pride and love !
In your mind and in your eyes
I hung the moon above !

Anything that I could want
Was given at request
As a baby and into youth
I had the very best !

From dolls to bunnies to bikes to rocks
My Daddy , my friend and strength
From home to school to the sea's sandbox
You taught me many things !

But evolvement of time from babe to lass
And as a young adult emerged ,
Pride and love was not to last
As lectures and advice were urged !

Disappointment and disgust were present
As I struggled to be my own
Making you proud and deserving your love
Was hard once I was grown.

Things I did or said
Was never quite good enough
Our bond died a very slow death
And our lives became so tough.

So very sad it was for us
That you could not see my love
And all that I really wanted again
Was to hang the moon above !

I tried so hard to prove to you
Before you left this world
I was deserving of your love
And that I was still your little girl.

Through bits of pain and heartaches
And happy and joyful times too
I hesitantly succumb to your lessons
And even though grown , I grew !

I'm grateful for giving my thanks to you
For those lessons that are so dear !
I know you loved me very much
No doubt about that is clear !

Then in your dying bed and breath
I know you finally saw
Your baby wrapped in pride and love
Still hung your moon after all !

Author's Notes: My father died in February of 2005. Eight months after my mother died. It has been and was .. and sometimes still is .. very trying. Losing them both so close together has been very difficult at times. I am at peace however , with both of their deaths.
I find myself remembering all of our times together. Both good , bad , happy and sad. I miss him.
My father was a very devout Mason. He had reached 32nd Degree in a very , very short time frame.
He applied those lessons he had learned as a Mason in his own personal life. He also tried to teach me things throughout his life , things I would not listen to for a very long time. Finally , after failing miserably at so many things , I started listening.
I truly started becoming the woman that I am.
A dedicated wife , mother , grandmother .. and a confident Witch. And even though I disappointed him on many occasions , in the end, he saw that I had grown into the woman he had hoped I would be.
I was so very glad that he was able to see this before he left this world. Not because it was so important to *make him proud* , but because I can live in peace knowing that he was.
