    Daddy’s Little Girl:angel1:

    I wobbled after him, wherever
    he led me as he stretched six feet towards the sky.

    One day he straddled his horse
    and road off to the moon
    when I was three or four—
    Can’t remember
    how he said goodbye.
    Bye bye daddy!

    Those years, I grew up tough.
    Threw rocks and kicked dirt with the boys.
    Kept my training bra straps loosened
    and my shoelaces tied tight.

    Then, momma taught me how to be
    a young lady.
    I walked across the stage like a woman and peered
    into the audience looking
    for his face.

    You came!
    Telling me to talk into the camera, but I
    didn't want to whine about those years without him or
    babble about the things we wshould have done.
    Just wanted to ride off on that horse.
