Daughters.....the softness and laughter of a home


Daughters are in ways proverbial gypsies.
Content an playful in their itsy bitsys.

The skip, the hop,
Wicker basket, off to shop.

Feel like the waft of calming breeze.
Wide eyed look when you sneeze.

Tender touch of a flower on cheek.
Your loving nod yearn to seek.

Add so much color to life,
forget you all the anguish, strife.

Vivacious laughter thrills.
The nooks an crannies fills.

Your heart and soul bloom.
Wash away your gloom.

They the tender shoots of today.
In time shall bloom another day.

Bring forth flowers of the morrows.
To slake the torment of your sorrows.

And one day late in evening shadows.
Amid song, dance and the meadows.

They go their way.
Far away.

To a new abode, a better place.
To lend a cheer, to give solace.

Leave the stark an silence behind.
For you to find.

Only the stars to guide you by.
Awake in bed as you lie!

    Amazing poem, having a sister who's married and has now happily settled in to her new house (alhamdulilah) I can feel the emotion behind this. Daughters are truly a blessing from Allah, they're a route for the father to go to heaven, they complete the deen (religion) of their husbands and heaven lies under their feet. (Report) Reply

    And one day late in evening shadows.
    Amid song, dance and the meadows.

    They go their way.
    Far away.

    How true, I have one too
    The reason of my joy
    The reason I live for
    Growing up so fast
    With a glow of love
    For home for life
    And for me now
    For a little while
    I too think of days
    When I will be
    Alone once again!
    Yes, Daughters.....the softness and laughter of a home!
    Lovely poem on our love for our children!

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
