When the world is right

and we know it is not always so

What little girl

Doesn’t see her daddy

As a megalith?

A tower of strength

and power and protection

that she loves and adores

One she models all future

lovers against

whether she realises it

or not

  1. Well done, you! I’m so glad that this is the view of your dad that you had, and the relationship you had with him and still carry in your heart. What a gift! It is indeed a “When the world is right” reality (or at least right ‘enough’), for indeed it is not always so. And yet, for everyone that it is, it is a gift.
    I’m so glad for you.
    xoxo Na’ama

  2. Such amazing photos, you are an adorable child!! I didn’t have a close relationship with my Dad and my Mom died when I was eight but i can relate to this Dale. Lucky girl, it’s wonderful to have that Megalith.

  4. Yes, totally agree!
    However, Thunder, the slide rule moves in different directions. Still the megalith remains.
    My megalith was not as described in your fab poem, rather the opposite.
    He was a bad stain, and I couldn’t be decent with any man, until I expunged the stain.
    And I did! 😀
