Father To A Daughter

She is as fine as vintage wine and as sweet as a Georgia peach
She was picked at the moment of perfection under the
Watchful eye and Gods direction.
Then she was sent here to earth, given to me by natural birth.

He said: this is my gift to you -she will be with you your whole life through
She is more precious than diamonds and gold
And your love for her will never grow old and will not tarnish or fade
For her heart is like a jade, and it will show her beauty day by day.
She is my daughter and I sent her to you, because you know
Exactly what to do and you will raise her and give her the teachings
That she needs= for in you I also planted a seed.

Just like I - she is a giver of life and she will make any sacrifice
She is the water of the earth and to life she gives birth.

    The father is proud of his daughter and is fully convinced of her qualities, that with confidence, he is giving his daughter away in marriage to an eligible guy to make their life fruitful ! How many fathers can honestly make such claims about their daughters, I wonder! Enjoyed! (Report) Reply

    If she chooses to sacrifice, her freedom is her choice, if we expect including the gods in us to do so, it is sacrilege. (Report) Reply
