Jessica

A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

A pixie of a girl for sure who weighs but a hundred true Yet has a heart larger than mine or any I ever knew

"


My Daughter Jessica


I have a daughter Jessica

just as sweet as she can be

And every time I look at her

she is smiling back at me

 

She gave me all my grandchildren

with the joys that each would bring

Her face is bright as morning dew

like the first breath of the spring

 

A pixie of a girl for sure

who weighs but a hundred true

Yet has a heart larger than mine

or any I ever knew

 

Each time we stop by to visit

she suspends rules of the house

Lets me do whatever I want

the same as her loving spouse

 

Of my children she is the one

I have not done justice to

The truth be told it's all my fault

"oh Jessie I do love you"

Author's Note

Tate Morgan
Of late I had jessica and the kids over. In our conversations I realized I had been remise. I had neglected my daughter Jessica. Of my three children she is the only one I have never written of. Yet though I had not honored her with anything. She had given to me most of my happiest memories of late. I can't remember a time when I saw her that she didn't say "I Love You ' to me. She is the mother to Payton, Landon, and Eli my grandchildren. I am sorry. This is my fault. So Jessie I stand before you a repentant father and ask that you accept this from me as the first installment of what will likely be many more.

Thank u tiana
I love how poets or even people put great sentimental value on every work and words they put on. This one is a treasure not only for the hearts towards the readers but most specifically to your child who had grown strong and beautiful. Indeed you are great. Thank you so much for sharing.

Thank you so much
This is so great and wonderfully written. Your daughter will surely love this. And she'll surely understand you. A daughter will always love and understand her father.
Thank you for sharing Sir.

thank you tomas she is a peach
She's beautiful and I know you're proud of her, even though you were a bit tardy in writing about her. Surely, she wasn't sore about it, but anyway, you're now covered. I'll bet you know that saying about dynamite coming in small packages.
