Days with a Daughter
My daughter lives over the ocean
as far away as she can be
although Skype allows me to see her
I wish she lived closer to me.
In spring she embarked on a journey
from England she flew by B.A.
to finally land here in Christchurch
despite some delays on the way.
To physically have her beside me
was good for my soul and my heart
shared times when we do things together
store memories for when we’re apart.
It’s vital to capture the good times
and live to the full every day
enjoy the time spent as a family
to remember when she’s gone away.
