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 you Gee
There is nothing like a sweet relationship between parents and their children. More dads across the world should feel like this about their children...instead of abandoning them etc. Nice write for your girl. Valentine

You are welcome.
I second the plea for Frieda. She's too darn talented to stay away, and she's too strong a person to give in to bullies and insane stalkers. This poem, however, is rife with love and sweetness. You write so easily, freely, with an open heart of boundless love. You've done your daughter a great service with this poem, Tate. She should feel honored to be described in these lines. Great work, my friend.

Aw, so precious! We to make a daughter feel special. I remember when my daddy wrote me a poem for the day of my wedding. He couldn't read it because he was all choked up and he had my uncle read it for him. It was deep from the heart and he expressed his love to me like never before. I love it!

Thanks for sharing Tate!

What heart-warming dedication to a daughter! This piece more than compensate for those times that you have forgotten to write a poem about her. You are so lucky to have a daughter like her and she, too, is blessed to have you as a father. Beautiful piece.
