To all My Hub Friends on Fathers day !......dedicated to a childs love .

Blessed with a daughter

The leaves turn up and show silver backs to the
receding rainy day
The winds pick up and cool down the
air in a friendly sort of way

Crisp cool and bright yellow the sun
works hard to set the day right
And giving in to fathers day
the hours settle to night

I open the mailings and oh
a letter from my daughter
Two fathers days cards !
what the heck could be the matter

One is dated last year and one for this
year too for sure
Was she trying to save a stamp
two for the price of four

Or the envelopes ? Oh my she's a quirky
kind of daughter
Maybe that's why she's so awesome
it doesn't really matter

If I had ten kids none of them would
measure up to Brandy
That girls like sugar mixed with love
her Fathers perfect kind of candy

I am blessed with a perfect daughter ................I love you so.

I AM a lucky lucky man .

You're a lucky man Ed. I've always wanted a daughter. My two sons are wonderful, but still, a daughter would complete my life. You make her proud, i'm sure. Loved your poem...
