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.

As a daughter, I wish I could have heard such words from my father. Unfortunately, he was gone before I was old enough to hold a single memory of him. This is beyond beautiful and deeply appreciated I'm sure.

that's okay...i probably do the same thing
I give this my version of an Amen! Oft times an incident, or perhaps reflection, in our quiet moments, brings us to the reality so neglected. I think you are now a much richer man, and that being said, I wish you a lifetime of "I Love You's".......

It won't be wrong to call you a prodigal son, as this poem is after a long time.

A delightful tribute to your beautiful daughter.

Oh! What a lovely tribute to honor your daughter and to show your gratitude for her. It’s human nature to often forget to show gratitude what’s good in our lives, especially when it comes with ease. It’s not that we lack gratitude for the comfortable gifts in our lives that come with such ease. It’s a testament to her that she is such a woman of grace.
