Spending time with my girls was an awesome experience as always.

Moments Spent
by Michael Romani

Spending time with these two
All of our moments are too few
Dreams shaping in their minds
Gifts of smiles of which I've been blind

Watching my daughters grow
Gives this father a happy glow
Though I've been kept away
Our reuniting has made this Valentine's Day

One of a very special sort and kind
All of me I thought left so far behind
Comes out in all they do and say
I see this even in the ways they play

Moments spent with them are my home
Times apart, cleave me to my bones
Finding that they are the best of my heart
And that I lose a bit of my soul when they depart

Every moment spent in its connection
A flow of love spun in each direction
There in all of their beautiful smiles
Are all the reasons, I survive despite the miles

All the obstacles and all of the troubles
Put in the way of our love could even redouble
And it would still not kill our special love
It's as if it remains guided from the above

Suddenly brought from thought into my present
As my eldest takes my hand and my tears relent
I smile into her crystal blue eyes in all their glory
Knowing she like me will come to write her own story

I hug my youngest girl close as I can to me
And I know as I look at her all her endless possibility
In each of them I see a bit of my very best
I take pride in their noble spirits that will not rest
