A Poem for My Daughter

Updated on May 31, 2016

Ten years ago, a beautiful little girl graced this world with her presence.

She was born with a smile.

Dark hair and baby blue eyes, that later turned to hazel.

Before we knew it, my little girl was trying to run…

She was older then her years, right from the start.

She could tell you the most amazing details about the world around her,

Pointing to the horizon your attention distracted, she would steal a piece of your heart

without ever missing a beat.

She is warm and graceful, beautiful, and smart.

I know I am her mother, but she has been a brilliant, and patient teacher.

We have an amazing parental bond that will never keep us apart.

Beyond our born Hierarchical roles, I see the women that she will someday become.

I long to see her special life unfold.

The strong and spirited, talented and active child has turned ten today.

Before I know it she will be pursing life’s destiny.

Someday she might be my granddaughter’s mother.

I wonder what she will say when her daughter joins the double digit club.

I can foresee the passing of the mother/daughter torch.

This mother’s love will burn forever for the daughter she will always be,

the example she is, and the women I will grow to know.

Ten spankings and a pinch.

      I have five children, too, and they are all parents themselves now, but I know how you feel. A mother's love is forever and blessed by God. Voted it up and beautiful.
