My Star

My Star

I don’t say it enough to you.

I tend to be too tough on you.

What goes unsaid: you make me proud.

You are beautiful, smart and funny, that is true.

I can always spot your smile in a crowd.

I am especially proud of all the little things you do.

At times we cooperate with mutual annoyance.

I hope you know you fill my life with abundance.

Much of the time you consider me bizarre.

No matter, you will always and forever be my star!

I wrote this poem for my daughter to show her that I do appreciate her and that I am proud of her, even when I don't say it.

I thought it was for someone special. Well done with both the poetry and the posting on FB She must be aglow, like the nebula above.

Denise, sometimes I don't know what to expect with her. I am working on a hub about connecting with teens. Her reaction exceeded my expectations, priceless! This is the first poem I have ever written, besides maybe in grade school. It took me all day.
