For my daughter, Stacey

Remember that I have loved you, When you remember me; Though at times I must admit, We did not agree. Life is a mixture of experience, Some good, some not so much. It's what we choose to learn from it, That gives the added touch. The added touch of mystery, The added touch of fun, The thing that makes life worth it, When all is said and done. You have been that thing for me, That gave my life that lift. You've been my source of added strength. You have been my gift. Wherever life may take you, Wherever you may go, Whatever life may bring you, One thing you must know. I have always loved you. Remember that I cared. Remember though I made mistakes, I still held you dear; And you were always in my heart, Your welfare my concern, And though I tried with all my might, I thought you'd never learn, That I have always loved you, And I always will, Though sometimes our paths will part, My love will hold you still. Life is like a harvest time. What we sow we reap. We let the straw fall to the ground, And the grain we keep.

You give good advice taken from life. Which is not a bed of roses but one goes for the perfume.
