Aris

A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

Aris and Andrew it is with all the love in my heart I grant you both my blessing and that of my ancestors. May it prove to be enough."

"


Aris and I


 Friends who played with you on birthdays

through all the laughter and the tears

Alongside whom, your gifts would bloom

with secrets shared over the years


The nights you cried yourself to sleep

for the things that I'll never know

I'm sure you knew, as I did too

 time would pass and you would grow


You've made it through adolescence

finished college, then got engaged

I'll cry the day, you go away

and lament on just how I've aged


I will be right there beside you

 proudly walking you down the aisle

Then let you go, face all a-glow

father charmed by his daughters smile



Aris Graduating from college


Aris and Andrew this morning after a year apart. My daughters Prince Charming may they have a fairy tale life together.

10/23/14

one of lifes great treasures.Walking them down the aisle

The day finally came and the tears flowed.

"Aris and Andrew it is with all the love in my heart I grant you both my blessing and that of my ancestors. May it be enough"
My daughter Aris's life is about to change. Her fiance is arriving home tonight on a flight from Afghanistan. I am going to be the man who walks her down the aisle fulfilling her childhood dream of getting married to prince charming. Has it really been that long?

What a very touching poem, full of memories, hope and promise. Your lines, as always, ever let the reader down, carrying us forward in your themes. This is a lovely homage to your little girl.
