A Daughter
(Daughter Poems)

All mothers need a daughter
someone like her to be ..
To dress her up and take her out
for all the world to see.

To brush her hair so shiny
the pretty bows to tie ..
To teach her how to clean her room
and how to bake a pie.

Then one day when she’s older
and finds her love so true ..
She never will forget the many
things she learned from you.

Someday she’ll have her children
my wish for her would be ..
To have a lovely daughter
one who is just like she!
