    Poem Commentary

    This is to my oldest daughter. The one person I believe when she smiles the whole world lights up.

    Goodbye and a Smile

    She was born in the middle of the night,
    She was the most beautiful sight,
    I believe she was heaven sent,
    She stole my heart in a moment,
    I loved her more than words can say,
    I think about her everyday,
    It was the hardest thing to say goodbye,
    It made me blue and cry,
    However, I heard about her smile,
    And knew all we had been through was worth while.

    How sad. I don't have children so I can't even imagine but a touching write nonetheless.

    good but very sad...but that is why we write to tell others of what we truly feel...So that they may feel too

    I can relate to what you feel being a mother of 3 grown daughters and 9 grandchildren. I wrote a poem dedicated to my 10 yrs old grandson, whom I've raised since his birth and I am his legal guardian. I've went through my daughters leaving the nest, somehow I know when his time comes to be leave it'll be much more dificult than my daughters. I'm a widow of over 11 yrs now. He came into my life when I needed a reason and purpose to live. I was there when he was born, I watched him enter this world. I know very well what you feel for your daughter. kyma63

    When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

    John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
