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.

Children grow up to be their parents in many ways. They are man's answer to immortality.

I can see that you love your daughter to pieces and it is reciprocated exactly the same way, if not more. A very touching piece. It's filled with affection, some levels of uncertainty and most of all your determination to protect and care for her forever. Beautiful :)

Good poem and well written, but the poem without the caption you provided for WC readers, " Hope, faith, love, Daughter" is not easily intelligible. Now if the title had been "My Daughter" or something similar it becomes more universal. Just a suggestion.

Thank you for you time and reading this poem.
Such a beautiful poem ... as families, we complete each other, each with their flaws and each with their respective talents, filling the areas where we lack.

Thank you for reviewing many of my poems and thank you for your insight and thoughts on this piece.
Fabulous, emotive, original poetry with that special sense of delight and style. This is truly my favorite kind of poetic writing. It tickles, it elates, it imagines itself into reality.

Thanks Adams I appreciate the compliment very much.
I like this poem, and the concept of how people can compliment each other. I really like how the first two stanzas are parallel.

I wonder, is there a way to make the third stanza fit a little more? You do it in the last two lines--"I am..."then "You are..." Can you do that switch in the first part of the stanza somehow?

That's very fine tuning. It's a beautiful poem.

Thank you for the review Viola.
Such a beautiful, lovefilled poem! Even when I don't have chidlren, I can get the feeling in this. I have always been an only child, and lived with just my mother, and this reminds me so much of her words she has ever told me. How much you love your child is touching, fills me with emotions and makes me smile. That's one lucky kido. Good job, as always!

I tend to look at the brighter side of life but I also question much. I don't write often, if I'm lucky I write a poem a month and it takes weeks at times to get it where I want. I don't have the pati.. more..
