In My Daughters Eyes

Updated on June 28, 2010
Me and my Daughter Audrey:)
Me and my Daughter Audrey:)

In My Daughter's Eyes by Martina McBride

This is dedicated to my daughter Audrey, I may not have given birth to you, but I Love You as much as if I did!!

In my Daughter's eyes I see

A beautiful woman looking back at me

You came into my life

So many years ago

I did not realize how very far we'd go

You thought I was taking your Daddy away

The way she left you forever and a day.

The pain she caused, the tears you cried.

All you ever wanted was Love, but that has made you what you are today

So strong, so brave, so dignified.

So now you are mine, Youve always been there.

With the foolish one, I don't have to share.

Yes we've had our ups and downs, so many through the years.

Now it's me who sheds the tears.

But these tears are not of sorrow or pain.

What someone throws away, is someone else's gain.

I strive to be the best mom I can be, and give you all my Love.

With the grace and strength that God gives me from above.

And for this I want to thank you, for all the special things you do.

You've made my life complete,

And forever I will Love You.....

      geegee 77,

      Your poem is very heart warming. I don't have a daughter, I am blessed with a son. I really adore girls, because I don't have one. I don't know what a father's relationship is with a daughter but you beautifully sketched a mother's relationship with a daughter. Keep in touch,

      Lots of Love,

      MAKUSR

      I really love this one geegee77 it was heart warming and I could feel it down deep inside. This has Inspired me to make one for my son that I haven't seen in more then 10 years sense his mother ran off with him, an even thou I have court records to see him she can't be found.

      Maybe now that he is 13 he might find me on hubpages and know it wasn't me, and that I love him.

      Being a step-mother can sometimes be the equivalent of "second string" when it comes to children growing up. You have obviously bridged that quite well and have a wonderful relationship to show for your hard work. Congratulations on both your achievement with your step-daughter and your well-written depiction of this scenario.
