You Are My Daughter

You Are My Daughter

A Poem by Robert
"

My Daughter

"

 

 

 

 

You are of me every filament

You are everything I will never be

You have never let me down and

     have always lifted me up higher

You are strong in your spirit of life

     but tangibly not as most are.


I am of you every filament

I am everything you will never be

I have never wanted to let you down

     but the day will come when I do

I am not as strong as you in spirit

     but tangibly I am more than most.


I am determined to see to it that I

     do not lose you

You are determined to see to it that you

     will not give up

I am the voice of reason and logic

You are the voice of hope and faith.

This is one of the most beautifully-stated messages I've read about a father-daughter relationship. Here's what makes your tribute especially appealing: You do not place yourself above your daughter, or she above you. I love the way you present each of your strengths, yet without any hidden tones of comparison or judgment. Your message uplifts you BOTH in separate & unique ways, this being culminated in the last 2 lines which are awesome. Any daughter would be totally blessed to have such a father.

Indeed an impassioned declaration of faith and dreams and love Robert. It reads romantically and with sincerity.

Thank you for the review I appreciate it.
Two different voices, two different people can still find common ground for love if they are willing, if they want to work hard for it. That was a very unique piece of writing. Thank you!

Thanks you Nadia for the review and your thoughts.
The last two lines sounds like what my husband would have said to me when he was still with me. Nicely penned. Valentine

Yes it did, soon it will be 2 years since I lost him. All rekindled memories are precious. Kathie
It reads like a vow, a sacred promise. It is both beautiful and magical!

I tend to look at the brighter side of life but I also question much. I don't write often, if I'm lucky I write a poem a month and it takes weeks at times to get it where I want. I don't have the pati.. more..
