Step Daughter


My precious step Daughter
How I wish the path to you was shorter
I moved a distance away
But my love for you will always stay

A better friend I can not find
You are ever respectful and kind
You have a golden glorious heart
Some are trying their best to break us apart
Their poisonous words does not succumb you to fold
As our bond is meant to hold

You and I are much the same
As others plays us like a game
At least in each other there is joy to be found
Always an encouraging voice sweet and sound

One word of advise
When in need for comfort, do not think twice
Pick up the phone
And remember you are never alone

You always think your sobs to me are tiring
But speaking about heart ache is very admiring
Even after all these years
Your sadness still brings me to tears

Our crossing paths were no mistake
And a promise to you I did make
I have said this a million times before
This you should never forget or ignore
My promise to you I will not break

I will be there for you until eternity
I will love you till infinity
And again I promise...you'll stay in my heart
My precious step Daughter, gorgeous and smart

    It sounds like this girl knows that you will always be a friend. A very nice letter
    to a girl who obviously touched you deeply as you must have touched her. A '10! '

    Best Wishes,
