My little ball of angel

My little ball of angel

A Poem by dkej743

about my daughter


She’s my little ball of angel




She brightens my heart and widens my soul


She helps me see things I cannot see on my own


She teaches me love on a whole new level


Looking at her, is like looking at the child inside me



She loves so hard it hurts, puts others first so often she pushes herself aside, she wants to please her loved ones so bad her world crumbles when she cannot.


Baby girl what do I teach you so you don’t take this beautiful love gift and trash it like I did?


Can I not tolerate her because I’m scared of seeing my reflection?


Baby girl I want you to thrive, god made you strong, my strong beautiful girl


I love you so much and you surprise me every day.


She’s me and more, so much more. I messed up and made so many mistakes in my life, how do I lord, teach her to cherish her heart when I never cherished my own? I never trusted myself, never loved myself truly.


Lord take me down this road to learn about this precious girl, please teach me how to make her whole before history repeats itself.


You highlight her lord. Why? What must I learn to define her? How do I tell her to trust herself, love herself, know that she is really special and that’s not just empty words. How do I teach her not to harden her heart when others shun her differences and trash her love? How do I keep her from self destructing? How do I keep her whole?


How do I teach her to cherish the gift you have given her, whatever that may be? How do I help her never give up even when she fails, how do I let her know, she is not a failure?


Lord I want to know everything I need to know about her.


She’s my little ball of angel

this was sweet, you expressed what it's like to be someone's mother and have doubts about how you are raising your child, I think as a mother myself, parents struggle with their doubts all the time. It's what we do with that self doubt that is important. I also love the way this was written as more of a prayer to God than as a poem, nicely done!
