My Daughter - A Poem about A Mother's Love
It seems like only yesterday
You were a little baby girl.
A cherished bundle of sweetness
More prized than any pearl.
The years, they’ve seemed to fly by
I wish they’d come back to me.
Those days of rocking you to sleep,
Of reading you books & bandaging scraped knees.
You are smart and fun and amazing
And you have grown in every way.
The young woman you’ve become
Makes me more proud with every passing day.
You’re growing up too quickly
My beautiful, smiling girl.
My only solace is that I know
You can conquer this great big world.
Enormously loved the day you were born
And every day in between,
I’m so thankful you’re my daughter
Can’t believe you are almost sixteen.
As you continue to grow up,
And eventually fly from my nest,
Know that you are so special
And I’ll always love you best.
So continue to live and learn my daughter,
Go forth and reach your dreams.
Know I always love and believe in you,
I’m always on your team.
