The Highest Accolade

My highest ever accolade
By my daughter to me was paid
When she sweetly said to me
“Mama, I love your poetry
Now that we have some free time
Read to me one of your rhymes
And Mama, you write so well
You have great stories to tell
But Mama, please write of me
That would make me so happy.”

The one who is my heart and soul
With this comment made me whole
What sweeter praise can I hear
Than those from her lips so dear
My daughter is my pride and joy
I wrongly guessed it was a boy
But God gave me a precious girl
She’s Mama’s most precious pearl
The highest accolade for  me
Is that she loves my poetry!

    It means so much more coming from someone so close to you. I find myself apprehensive a lot of times and don't find my writings all that interesting to my family and friends. But once in a great while, someone will pop out of no where just to say they enjoyed reading them. It's an indescribable feelings, but it never seizes to make my day! Really, really well penned!

    I'm in a family of poets, so...it's not like "WOW...how awesome was that!" However, now they are taking me a bit more seriously thanks to Poetry Soup. You are right, Timothy, it is an indescribable feeling of sheer euphoria! :) Thanks for stopping by.

    Kids will say anything for an ice cream lol. Though I'm sure she means this, she's a lucky girl. Take care, Richard

    Richard, she is 18 years old. I don't think she would really ask for ice cream seeing as she is living in Cyprus...on her own! ;) You had to shoot me down, eh? I forgive you. Don't I always. Thanks for the compliment at the end.
