To My Daughter

Written by: Juanita Thorn

How often do I say
My love grows for you everyday?
Each time you smile
You make everything worthwhile

The day your soul started growing
I found a certain peace and knowing
Something that comes with Motherhood
My role as Mother I understood

Your life was the best gift God gave me
An extension of my family tree
A daughter to be proud of
I thank the heavens above

I know sometimes we fight
Stubbornly we believe each one is right
But our arguments don’t last for long
As we finally see that fighting is wrong

You are like my best friend
You inspire me to no end
You are my guiding light
You give me reason to fight

You have a beautiful heart
And in life...that’s an integral part
A good recipe for happiness
And a lifetime full of kindness

Your spirit keeps me going
As your confidence keeps growing
You teach me day by day
How to live in the best way

We will always be together
Our hearts are joined forever
Even when death does us part
You will always stay in my heart.
