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.

'filament' is such a wonderful word Robert, class choice.

The 'One' will possess all the things we lack and thus when union is joined a new infinitely better 'One' is made from the two. Now just have to find them.

Beautiful writing Robert.

Thank you ANTO I appreciate your words.
This is a fantastic poem on faith and reason!!! I like how you separate what faith and reason is with your use of I am and You are! What is also interesting is that the fact you paired I am with reason and logic tells me your point of view...from my background I would have paired I am with hope and faith. Yet I do have one question as to the lines "You are everything I will never be" and "I am everything you will never be," for faith and reason do share a similar core...they are not forces that work against each other but rather with each other. Faith provides one with the capacity to believe without seeing whilst reason requires one to see and then believe. Granted you are right they will never be each other, but for the gullible and hardheaded both are needed to keep the eyes open. For if one only has faith and no reason they become lost and if one only has reason and no faith one often doubts. However, when a person has both, the heavens and the world opens up to them. ...this is my new favorite poem, thanks for writing!

Thank you Nisreenaa.
The strongest ropes are made of strands wrapped 'round one another. Methinks you two are the strongest, wrapped 'round each other.

Thank you so much.
sounds like the perfect two - the yin and yang the hot and cold the up and down the cup to the saucer - nice sentiment here and one lucky muse X
