In My Eyes (Rictameter)

In My Eyes

Daddy
my first true love
a strong but tender man
cancer tries to break your spirit
as you silently fight this big battle
determined to be the winner
a hero in my eyes
my one true love
Daddy

    I recently began a relationship with my father who I haven't known since I was a child. The saddest part is in all these missing years I still felt like daddy's little girl. hes here now and at 30 whole years old...I still feel like it. Every time I read your stuff I feel it! Something I have always said about you. You pull people in....even if it is just a short verse. Xoxoxo rock on friend!!!

    Such a beautiful little poem which flows so easily. Technically perfect and full of emotion so many of us can equate to. This is going in my favourites.

    To be a Daddy's girl... is beyond unconditional... when a father is ill, it reminds his daughter just how touching and short life can be, Angie has taken her love for her father and captured the readers hearts and souls with this poem.

    Ricatameters can be a hard form to write because of the restrictions and syllable count.. the flow has to be rhythmic, and Angie is flawless.. a remarkable piece!!

    The style of poem was lovely to see and lovely to read as well. The sentiment really touches a person's heart since family is normally what a person views the most precious. Beautiful read.

    Wow, this is a wonderful and really powerful nugget of genius. I was both in awe of the technical aspect and emotionally affected by the subject matter.

    super work.
