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.

Excellent 👍
If only all father's reached out to their children as you have here. Jessica is very lucky to have you in her life. Very much enjoyed the smile this brought. 'she suspends the rules of the house'... Sounds like you're a playful grandparent as well as a loving father.:) Thank you for sharing, kind Tate! And for making me want to surprise visit my father to steal the greatest bear hug.
