Just Four Years…

It had been 4 years, and still the memory lingered. Tracing my daughter’s perfect features with my fingertips the first time I held her. Imagining the beautiful woman she would become.

She is growing more beautiful, I thought as I watched her laugh and dance in the grass.

All I could muster was a weak smile when she skipped to me. As she slid my scarf off to stroke and kiss my bald head, I savored the sweet scent of the flowers woven into her hair. Tears filled my eyes.

Please, God, is 4 more years too much to ask?

Once again, I have placed in the Go Teen Writers prompt contest! This time, I received votes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. I don’t think anyone has yet received three winning votes on any one prompt!

Now for the big news… I am now in first place overall!! Wow, I am truly amazed. I have learned so much from the feedback I have received from the judges of this contest, and listening has really paid off!
