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 so much Sarah.
I like the switch between second and first person point of view. The repetition adds emphasis on the strength and hope between you and your daughter. Your writing is personal, which in turn makes your thoughts and ideas very well-grounded and concrete.
Wonderfully written!

Having my mom as my reason and logic I can definitely connect to this poem, understanding the thoughts and feelings of a parent. Although I have yet to raise another human being, I have raised beloved pets and that is enough for me to peek into what parenthood is about. I know it is definitely not the same but I have the heart of a mother and I am ready to be one when the timing is right. Beautiful work here, much like the rest of it. Great Job!
