National Poetry Month- When I was 1


My daughter's poem to her dad. 


When I was one my daddy lived
He read me stories
      had lots to give
When I was three
He passed away
     and life was lived in an okay way
Now I am six
many tears I've shed
     but life is beautiful these words God said
Please don't be sad 
I'm not alone
I have a loving wonderful home
But it is true 
Sometimes I'm sad, 
    Sometimes I'm glad, sometimes I'm mad
For these are feelings we all share 
But when they're much too big for me
    I look up high there Jesus see

I put my hands up in the air 
ask for his love and say a prayer

Now I am lucky for you see
I've an extra prayer sayer for me
Thank you daddy

written with my mom's help
