Too many people grow up. That's the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up. They forget. They don't remember what it's like to be 12 years old. They patronize, they treat children as inferiors. Well I won't do that.

I can hear the birds
sing their morning song
I could lay out here
until dusk comes along.
As I watch the river
flow over the sand
I remember the day
when someone else was by my hand.
He took me through the trees
and he showed me this place
the most beautiful sight
that you could hardly replace.
It was his soul
of my father my dad
the most happiest thing
a daughter could ever have.

This poem is about my step dad. He died when i was 7 years old. He got into a trucking accident. He was my friend, my family, and most important, he was my hero!

Loved you once love you still always have always will.~ Theres always a little truth behind every "just kidding" a little knowledge behind every " i don't know"~ a little emotion behind every " i don"t care"~ And a little pain behind every "I'm Okay".
