    Poem Commentary

    I wrote this as a gift for my daughter who turned 25 last year. Watching her grow through the years, has left me beaming with pride. She is not only my daughter, she's my best friend too.

    Daughter

    Precious little baby
    Precious little girl
    Stole my breath and captured my heart
    When you came into this world

    The joy I found in your laughter
    And the twinkle in your eyes
    Filled my heart with blessings
    No father could deny

    As I watched you grow in wonder
    Inquisitive of what you saw
    So eager you were to live and learn
    That you filled my mind with awe

    I've always tried to teach you
    The appropiate things to do
    But it's important for you to know
    That you have taught me too

    There are times when this world gets heavy
    And I feel that no one cares
    It's times like these you reassure me
    That you are always there

    It's the love of you, my daughter
    That keeps me standing strong
    I'll forever keep you in my heart
    Right where you belong

    This is a beautiful poem, which I can relate to. I feel the same way about my son. Children are precious.

    Beautyfull is all I can say. A perfect reminder of what a real father is.

    Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.
