Memories Close To My Heart, Me

Memories Close To My Heart, Me

On that cold December night,

I lay on my bed, weeping;

The agonizing pain in the legs,

Was more than what a 5 year old could take in.

This is how I will have to spend the night,

I thought, struggling with my aching feet;

Although I tried to sleep with all my might,

That tough endeavor I couldn't complete.


Suddenly my foot was touched by a soothing hand,

'Don't worry my princess' he said, rubbing in a pain balm;

'I will take away the pain with my magic wand',

'And then you will sleep' he said, 'so be calm'.

Slowly the ache was gone,

And I fell asleep on his chest;

His strong hands around me was thrown,

The dreams that day were the best.


In the morning he was there,

To wake me up with a lovely smile;

'Is the pain gone?' he asked, fondling my hair,

'It is gone Daddy' I said, 'now that you are here!'

I wish I had realized then

That you being with me wouldn't be forever;

But of all the things you left for me,

I treasure one the most, your memories.

Memories close to my heart,

Memories which I can never part.
