Mother and DaughterA Poem by DeeDee Kaulitz
For my daughter Abigail
Daughter, I remember the day I brought you home,
20 hours of labor, trouble, but you survived-
I watched your tiny body, so fragile, so frail,
In your tiny infant jail.
I held you in my arms and wept with joy,
A mother’s love, I thought you would die,
But that wasn’t God’s ploy.
I watched you grow stronger day by day,
Watched you wander on unsteady legs,
Run, frolic, and play.
My baby, you have grown so much before my eyes-
Every time I see you, I want to cry,
I weep with joy at what you have done,
I feel my heart fill with love.
The bond betwixt mother and child-
Is something that is joyful and makes me smile,
The bond betwixt mother and daughter-
Is something special and something stronger.
I love you my baby
Who is now almost grown,
I’ll always be with you-
No matter where you go.
