She Dances Away from Me

I wrote this poem for my daughter.  She's now 19 and still living with us while she's going to school.  All these years we've been very close, sharing everything.  Although still with us, she's moving away from me.  I know this is God's plan to prepare both parents and kids for the kids to fly, but it hurts nonetheless. 
My poem, 'She Dances Away from Me.'

  1. Bitter sweet...I watched mine fly away . Very touching, and I know she will love it more as time goes by.

  2. Yeah. Thanks, Rayanne. The older they get, the more difficult it gets sometimes.
