A Mother's Advice to her Daughter

The sound of wedding bells, I hear
My daughter’s maiden flight, so near
Festive celebrations, in full gear
And nuptial gaiety, so much in the air

Oh, Love! Under our sheltering wings
Guarded you were, from tumultuous swings
Now that you are going away
To live under another’s sway,

Bear in mind this counsel given
By a mother who through age has wiser grown
That’ll make your life blissful as you wish
And keep it aglow without blemish

Make a home of the house you go
Give love to all in weal and woe
On your face, a pleasing smile you wear
Cover in cheer, your furrowed brow of care

Adore the man with all your ardour
And show him that you really care
Condone him, though frailties abound
And correct him in private, not raising sound

As years glide and glamour fades
As grimy truths emerge from hides
Life may not appear all that fair
As once it seemed to the soulful pair

Yet, believe, your life is clad in glory
Dispel all nagging thoughts that leave you sorry
Know, the stumbling blocks that seem so gory
Will finally lead to brighter paths of glory

Conquer the hearts through your innate charisma
Never surrender to anyone but to your anima
Hold your head up and never look timid
And venture into a life with dreams vivid!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is the advice I got from my mother as I was preparing to leave my home after marriage.That had a deep impact on me. This I believe was the message, each mother of that age and time used to pass on to her daughter, getting ready to be married!

    ... i am glad you have took seriously... whatever your mother said.. listning is easy and to do what you are told to is different.. you have absorbed everything that you mother said...
    Nice write.

    I really adore this write Valsa. A mothers advice is always good even when
    it comes to marrying and leaving the home. She will never steer her children
    wrong. A wise daughter will take heed to this wonderful show of love.
