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.

What is important is family members respect each and support them no matter what is going on inside our individual lives.
Parents aren't perfect and our children will learn those needed lessons as they go through life and raise their own offspring.
Great picture of your daughter and tribute is always nice to read!

Thank you I have waited all this time to honor her when I thought she needed it most
Tate, this is so very sweet...I am sure she felt good when she read it. My experience has been that the words flow when I am upset or in a lot of pain, but I hope to start conveying my positive feelings, especially to the people who have loved me in the dark times of my life. Your poem is a great example for me.

Thank you Andrew so nice to hear
How blessed, lucky, and fortunate ya'll are to have one another! I have found lately, as a Creative, I have in the past tended to write about the puzzles and conflicts. Those who I understand and am good with, I have had a tendency to enjoy them presently and not so much in writing. This is an honest lesson in learning to steep more in the things, and those, we enjoy rather the things, and those, we do not. Thank you very much for sharing this in earnest. An awesome, delightful, respectful, fun, and bright piece she surely appreciates!
