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.

You are welcome. I enjoy your work.
Some think with their heads, some with their hearts.
But they both want the same thing, together.
Such a lovely piece of writing.

Thank you for your words Sereena.
Your words are powerful and filled with emotion. I really love the line
I have never wanted to let you down
but the day will come when I do
such honesty here - after all we are only human.
A beautiful poem, well written and a delight to read.

you are welcome robert
I like the way you control the way the words flow with space and capital letters. Too much punctuation can sometimes be a distraction. The voice is strong. Choice of words and structure both lend to the strength of the message.

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..
