A Letter to My Daughter Christine


To many miles apart are we now
can i say i'm sorry anyhow
yesterday we talked about what happened
words were said, that should be tossed away
years ago in a far away day
when you both came over to stay
Jimmy is gone now, but your still here
so we have today, yesterday is gone
tomorrow will bring new memories
that we can share my daughter dear
Chris lets start today brand new, the past is long gone
so sorry about things that have happened to you
I love you so much, more than you know
lets make today a brand new start
i know if we do, it will bring a glow to our heart

    Jim, I hope you, and your daughter resolved your differences. My biological daughter doesn't recognise me as her father and that's devestating - every man should love, and be loved by his girl child. It's one of lifes most beautiful rewards and I've never experienced it to my great sorrow. Bless you both. Love, Jerry (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
