Angels First Car
By Richard Maxfield
6-20-2000

As I hand the keys to her
Thoughts race through my head
No longer a baby but a young lady

It seems as if it were only yesterday
I brought her home from the hospital
So small all dressed in pink

Totally depend on me for every thing
I could hold her in my hands
Keeping her safe from the whole world

She grew and I grew with her
She showed me the true meaning of life
That no matter what you own it has no meaning

What really matters is love
The kind of love she has brought into my life
Love that has no boundaries

The bigger she became the more I had to let go
She no longer needed my hand to walk
But she still reached out to hold it

When she started school I was there
As she made her first long walk away
All dressed up in a new dress with her papers

Where ever I went she was my constant companion
Always at my side with those big bright eyes
A warm smile that I could never say no to

Her first dance she was Angel in her gown
That mean old boy was no way good enough
He needed to be a prince no a king

So as I hand her the keys
These and a million more thoughts raging
Memories when I could hold her all night.

It is hard for Daddy to let go of his Angel
But I know I must some how find the strength
For now is her turn to fly

This poem was so loving it brought tears to my eyes. You sure can feel your love for your angel in it. I'm sure my dad feels this way, because I'm his baby. Nice to see it from a Dads point of view. Take care.

Thank you all for the wonderful comments. This poem was and is a chuck of my heart. My baby is not a bay any more but she will always be my baby.

Love and light,
Richard

Oh, this was a very lovely poem, Richard! Yes, growing up is an inevitable part of life, but that little angel will always be part of your heart, forever! Your love for her shines like the heavens in here, thank you for sharing, my friend!

May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,

Aw Richard...How very lovely..I have 2 of these Angels and it is so hard to clip those wings and let them fly..I have missed so much of your work, my puter has been down...Thankfully I was able to get here for this one...   Another keeper..As you already knew..    Hugs...~LL~

The way to love anything is to realize it might be lost. author unknown

Your welcome for my comment. It's true no matter how old she is she will always be your baby. Both my dad and me feel that way about me. Take care.
