A MELTED HEART

Journal Entry: Sun Jun 3, 2012, 10:27 PM
Skin by NorthBlue
Subject


My oldest daughter Alia is going to turn 13 years old in a few months.  I always tell her how proud I am of her, and what an exciting time it is for her to become a teenager.  She overheard me talking to my girlfriend Becky about how they are growing up so fast, and how I want to make sure I am as perfect a father as I can be.  I don't want to look back and regret not having done the right thing by them.  The other night, I was working in my home office, and Alia knocked on the door.  She asked if she could read something to me.  I dimmed my computer and went with her into the den where we could talk.  This is what she read me...

WHEN YOU THOUGHT I WASN'T LOOKING by Alia Rogers

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you rock me when I was tired,
and I knew you loved me.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I watched you till I fell asleep,
and I loved you from that moment on.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you laughing at my dumb jokes,
and I knew you didn't want to hurt my feelings.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I was watching you dad,
and I want to thank you for all the things you have done for me,
when you thought I wasn't looking...


Needless to say, just like right now, I had tears falling down my cheek, and really didn't know what to say to her but that I love her so much and that I am the luckiest dad in the world.  My little girl is becoming a young lady, and I will worry some, but also can see how she is a chip off the old block.  :lol:  I am going to have her poem framed, and hang it on my office wall where I can be reminded that for as much love that I give, I get it back ten fold.  :iconbigheartplz:


My continued prayers to my friends Katti,  Lil,  Chas, Chelsea, Dawn, and Shell :pray:

To my friends and watchers I wish you a wonderful and prosperous week ahead... :icontimmy64plz:

POETRY CORNER

:iconvenusdoom33: The Magic of LoveIt feels so wrong
to love you.
But I can't be strong
without you.
Can't live anymore
without thinking of you.
Everything I live for
is just you.
Even though I know
I have no chances.
And never will be able to show
you my feelings and stances.
I will ever feel love for you.
Because I think this is true.
I love everything that has to do with you.
I love the beautiful texts
you write, I know they're not for me.
It feels so wrong to love you.
But nevertheless it feels so good.
And I hope that this is true.
TearsWhy do we hold back our tears?
To hide what we feel?
To pretend we are alright?
When we aren't?
That's the wrong track.
Let your tears out
So everyone sees them.
Show them how you feel!
That's mostly the only way
To make them think
What went wrong.
It's mostly the only way
To make them think
If they can help
When you can't by yourself.
Let your tears out
It can cause miracles
RescuedBroken hearted of the torture
This endless torture she suffers every day
With each time she approachs them
She feels their dislike, their ignorance
Unable to take it any longer she runs
Runs away from life, hides in her secret world
Her imaginary world noone other ever discovered
Until that one day she finally found someone
Understanding her suffering and feelings
Whom she finally offers to enter her world
Sharing images of that hidden place
Involving him in her world...
Looking insideThinking she's too good
For us all,
No one ever understood
what he shall.
She stands there so vain,
Judging all her fellow men
by, what everybody would complain
first sight of that human.
Pretending she's nice
To each one,
At all points of her lifeline
Being best.
Until you look beneath
That oh so kind facade,
There reveals a cold, decadent heart
Well covered by this mask...

What a sensitive, astute and caring daughter you have, you've obviously instilled some very important values in her. She's well on her way to becoming a fine young lady.

My son turned 13 in April and my daughter will be 17 in Sept. I am so very proud of both of them.
There is a great children's book you may want to read (if you haven't already). "Love Your Forever" by Robert Munsch & Shelia McGraw 1995
It came out the year my daughter was born. The best part is this "I love you forever. I'll like you for always. As long as you're living, my baby you'll be".
I use to recite that to my children every night when I tucked them in.

The love of our kids has no value, we cannot compare them to the all treasures of life, to all the beauties in life, because it is so powerful, so full of innocence and passion...

I am in love too with my 11-year-old daughter, and seeing her growing so too very fast breaks my heart sometimes, bu when she comes to me with a smile and hugs me and tells me how she loves me, I begin to cry deep tears of happiness...

Hope you will always have moments like that in your life Dave...

She is quite as gifted as her dad!! :aww:
