2a-03:  I Remember “Daddy”

You always showed me I was important:

I remember …
looking up at broad shoulders
and sparkling eyes
that looked directly into mine.

I remember …
the expression on your face
with your voice so low
when I put on that short SHORT skirt.

I remember …
Dancing with you;
a small girl with her “Daddy”
and the pride in the way you moved.

You’re important to me, too,
and I wish I could dance with you again …
and tell you, “I love you, Daddy.”
