You Are My Daughter

You Are My Daughter

A Poem by Robert
"

My Daughter

"

 

 

 

 

You are of me every filament

You are everything I will never be

You have never let me down and

     have always lifted me up higher

You are strong in your spirit of life

     but tangibly not as most are.


I am of you every filament

I am everything you will never be

I have never wanted to let you down

     but the day will come when I do

I am not as strong as you in spirit

     but tangibly I am more than most.


I am determined to see to it that I

     do not lose you

You are determined to see to it that you

     will not give up

I am the voice of reason and logic

You are the voice of hope and faith.

This is one of the most beautifully-stated messages I've read about a father-daughter relationship. Here's what makes your tribute especially appealing: You do not place yourself above your daughter, or she above you. I love the way you present each of your strengths, yet without any hidden tones of comparison or judgment. Your message uplifts you BOTH in separate & unique ways, this being culminated in the last 2 lines which are awesome. Any daughter would be totally blessed to have such a father.

Thank you for the review Tomas.
Interesting write, especially because it is based on a father-daughter relationship. I couldn't relate (cause I'm no one's daughter, lol) but I could definitely understand the message and the tone. The picture adds to the poems, and the last line in the last stanza is strong. She is basically the speaker's anchor, and they are dependant on each other
Glad I read, and thanks for sharing this :)

Thank you Clifford for your review.
As a daughter of a rather quiet and a bit distant father, I think this is how every father feels regarding their child, especially their daughters. This was an emotional read, I think this explains why certain relationships will always be graceful over others, they are moved by unselfish motives, as yours are. There's an awe in fear and love in weaknesses, and I think that's what a Father-daughter relationship explores. This is an inspiring, and magnificent read, so pure and innocent, and sincere, amazing :)

What a lovely tribute! As a mother, this speaks to me deeply. They are so amazing and so often a direct contrast to us. The balance is beautiful as is this poem.

A lovely compliment to your daughter also reflects as a compliment to yourself. You are not afraid to say what you mean in plain language.
