Daughter Of Mine

Beautiful Daughter full of grace I pray that time caresses your face. Today is only ribbons and bows, Tomorrow it will be life and all for you it holds. Silk and satin, then leather and lace candy covered kisses, dance class and all the silly faces I hope I never miss. Then someday you will stand up tall all in white you will pledge in your wedding trend and beside you will stand the man who promises to love until the end. I will go back to today, when I was watching you as you played and I'll then give a smile for I'll know how precious you are to me, then and now. No matter what tomorrow brings along, My love with be with you, your whole life long.

As a mother who already walked her down the aisle..what a treat your poem is. Today I go to pick up my grandson at three pm. Though a boy, he carries all her beauty and compassion~ ah, daughters. Magical beings. Panagiota
