Daughter Poems P5
I look into her little eyes,
and to God I say a prayer.
I ask Him please to watch her tiny steps,
on the days that I’m not there.
I pray to God she never has to feel the pain,
that her Daddy held deep inside.
But if she does that I will understand,
it is something she never has to hide.
I know the world can be a scary place,
please God don’t let her fear.
She only deserves a better chance,
she didn’t ask to be here.
I truly have put my faith in you,
to help me do what’s best for her.
Even though I feel that I do my best,
I need Your help to know for sure.
I listen to her take her little breaths,
and watch how every day she grows.
I have more questions than time to ask,
but I hope for her I can be the one who always knows.
Please never let her see the fear in me,
please don’t let her be scared.
Just reassure her that whatever Daddy did,
he did because he cared.

My Sweet Daughter
My sweet daughter, lovely and true
you’re always on my mind.
With memories of the yesteryears
and present all entwined.
I see a crawling curious babe
slowly learning to behave
On to dolls and girlie things
dress-ups, tea-parties, fairy wings.
Teen boys coming to the door
me thinking, what are they here for.
Wedding bells arrive so fast
my time now is in the past
With ears alert, I now await
to hear and share my daughter’s fate.
My sweet daughter, lovely and true
Please know this, I Love You….
From Mother to Daughter
I know you think I’m hard on you,
year after year.
I would like to take this chance to tell you
why it is my dear.
You are and will always be my little girl,
but my protection will not last.
Life is wonderful, but it is not easy,
so you must learn real fast.
I must teach you to stand
and how to take a fall.
and how to get straight back up
I must teach you above all.
I must teach you to rely
and trust in your own visions.
There will be times when there is no one else
to make the hard decisions.
I must teach you to develop understanding,
forgiveness love and trust.
This will keep your family together,
this lesson is a must.
I hope the things I’ve tried to teach,
will one day be clear.
The time will come you for you to teach
your little girl to hear.
Smile, laugh, run, play for me.
I so enjoy the way you breathe and sleep
If angels exist, you have escaped the heavens
to honor me with the gifts of your beautiful wings.
Talk, read and eat for me.
The way you speak enthuses me.
Believing in destiny makes me so thankful that
God planned your entrance into this world through me.
Jump, sing, act and dance for me.
Your continuous accomplishments humble me
I’m in awe of your amazing talents,
your appreciation of the arts were implanted
long before we met face to face.
Grow, learn, develop, and listen to me.
Your progression into adulthood scares me.
My baby is entering a world where
I can not always protect but I am always present,
I’m in your heart so my love for you is always within.
Decide, move, love and live for yourself
I trust that your instincts are strong
your choices, I will not always agree,
but I will always support,
love and respect the person you become.
My daughter, you’ve provided me with such
a wonderful vision, my life could not be more
fulfilled with the exception of the privilege
of watching you smile, laugh, run and play.
Enjoy your life for me, but most importantly,

Daughter of Mine
There’s a charm and grace about you,
a spirit free and wild,
the kind that’s honest true and free
the spirit of my child.
Yet you walk the walk of a woman
who is confident and strong.
Who can stand her ground when needed
knowing right from wrong.
With a heart full of compassion
with an independent mind,
Every little thing you are
In one is hard to find.
There are no words to describe
how much you mean to me,
or how proud I am of the woman,
that you have come to be.
How do I explain in words?
how proud I am of you
The person you are
Is someone to look up to.
You’re not only my daughter
but my best friend too.
I must have done something right
for the gods to give me you.
I wondered when you were a little girl
what God had planned for you.
Who and what you’d grow up to be
made all my dreams come true.
I am so very proud of you
In each and every way.
God gave me the gift of you
a miracle every day.
My Darling Girl
My darling girl, whose almost grown,
Very soon you’ll fly out on your own.
As I reflect on years passed,
one by one they went so fast.
I cherish memories of you and me,
and dreamt what your future life would be.
I wish for the best throughout your life,
Simple happiness without strife.
There were times of joy along the way,
with bouts of turmoil and dismay.
You’ve had some knocks and times of tears,
But your inner strength has grown through years.
There’ll be many choices in life to make,
I know the right path you will take.
There is some advice I have left to give,
Be true to you and the life you live.
Set your goals high along the way,
live to the fullest every day.
Keep God in your life and be true to Him,
He promises guidance when life is dim.
Know that I love you with all of my heart,
Nothing will ever tear that love apart.
(Mother Daughter Poems)
How sweet it is a mother’s love,
When God bestows gifts from above,
He sends you down into my arms
to fill my world with your charms.
I watch you learn and grow each day,
I watch you discover things at play,
You look to me with wondering eyes
my love for you I can’t disguise.
A love like this not known before
This little girl I do adore.
Filling my days with magic beams
filling nights cuddly dreams.
How I wish for you the very best,
Keep all the good, discard the rest,
Protect you from all life’s pain,
Dance in sunlight, play in the rain.
You’re my miracle a part of me,
I am what I’ve wished to be,
I f I had the chance to tell you
all the things in my heart.
I would tell you how very much I have loved you
from the very start.
I would tell you how proud you make me,
each and every day.
How beautiful a young woman you are growing into,
in all you do and say.
I would tell you of the respect I have for you,
as my daughter and the person you are.
I would tell you stories of how you remind me of me.
Of the mistakes I made so
hopefully you would avoid some heartache.
I would listen to all your hopes and dreams
and encourage you all the way.
I would remind you of how wonderful you are
and of all the good things you do.
and tell you every day,
as I do now, how much
I love you.
I sneak into your room to look upon your face
the love I hold in my heart for you can’t ever be replaced.
Every prayer, every hug and kiss I recall with a smile
every tantrum, every tear, every time-out a trial
I place your tiny hand in mine and close my eyes tight
I pray to the Lord that he will help me raise you right.
I lean down and kiss your soft little cheek
I cover you up with your favorite blanket, so soft and pink
I whisper “good night my love” and close the door
wishing I could keep you forever at four.
But I know I can not stop the hands of time
But If I could, I would give up my very last dime
These moments with you, my child, are precious and few,
I wouldn’t trade or give away one second with you
My Little Princess
Oh my little princess your arrival is not yet set
I’ve been waiting to meet you and prepared your new bed.
Your family is gathered to see you bundled and home
and smother you with kisses and a love not yet known.
Come soon little princess you’re on the edge of my heart
I burn with anticipation to hold you in my arms.
A Precious Flower
A precious little flower
that is in constant bloom
I watch as yet another milestone
around the corner looms.
It seems like only yesterday
that we shared a breath
but now it seems like tomorrow
you will leave and I’ll be left.
A tiny little angel
that always is in flight
as soon as you came into my life
you brought me so much light.
Your beauty is so stunning
your smile makes me melt
I’m so proud to be your mommy
it’s the best I’ve ever felt.
Oh perfect little princess
with you I’m so in love
every night before I dream
How did I get so lucky
to have as sweet of a gift as you
if ever you should need me
there’s nothing I wouldn’t do.
