Tuck Of Time
~*Marge Tindal*~


Softly, I am folded into this tuck-of-time
Heart held suspended in touchable thoughts
Carouseling memories keep turning me back to you
Your footprints are as fresh as yesterday’s rain

Happily I splash the puddles of my yesteryears
finding those special moments
you made sure I’d have for all time
Daddy’s are supposed to be forever
… and yet it was not to be
You were called away too soon
from the growing tree of me

So many times I sit the boughs of your memory
My arms wrapped tightly around myself
rocking to the sound of your whistling
You taught me that, you know …

I remember so well when you said,
"Don’t let them tell you girls don’t whistle, Margie."
So, I learned to do it … and do it well
You’d be proud of the woman I’ve become, Daddy
just as I am proud of the memories of you~

"Life is filled with if only’s," you said.
I’ve come to know this is true …
If only I had been given the chance to know you longer
we’d undoubtedly have been the best of friends~

So I fill my thoughts with your memories
wishing there were more …


In loving memory of my father, Mitchell C. Cowart,
who was tragically taken from this young girls life
at much too early an age … both his and mine~
Daddy – July 1, 1917 - May 24, 1957

Dear Marge:  I love this poem and it's a wonderful tribute to your dad.  I'm sure he would be so proud of you and who you are and perhaps he does know?  My dad died at 53, which seemed young to me, but your Dad was so young!!

Love
Betty Lou

Marge,
This title caught me a full day before I could read it...and I didn't know why.
Understood so well the thoughts and feelings tucked within. Hugs, TD

He certainly was taken far too young and too early from you. I don't think we ever feel we have had our "Daddy's" long enough.

Just because today is another 'remembering day'~

Though I browse the memories, how very much I still miss my father~
