Rescuing since 1992

by Kaila   Apr 11, 2009

When the thunder came roaring,
there you would always be.
Right beside my favorite pillow,
ready to comfort me.

You'd comb my hair back so tight,
laughing as you'd go.
Buying me the cutest outfits,
to your friends I'd always show.

Through lifes scrapes and cuts,
my band-aid you would be.
Knowing how to fix the pain,
never you would flee.

Boys would come and, they would go,
though you would always stay.
Through the tears, and the pleas,
you would never go away.

I'm thankful for each fight,
as horrible as it may be.
I hope you will always be there,
ready to rescue me.

    I don't really know what else to say but this was an amazingly cute poem. Not in the way it's written or the rhyme, but the message is damn cute. I respect that you've written this about a parental figure, it's really sweet and they're lucky to have you as their child.
    This was incredibly easy to read, the rhyme was perfect, likewise the flow.
    A great poem all 'round, 5/5.

    I feel you were within poetic license here

    Everything seem to reflect a true feeling

    The only thing I would change is
    "never you would flee."
    you would never flee
    but that may just be me

    Overall I feel you were excellent at delivering a sense of strong admiration
