What Daddy Sees In Daughter - Poem by Nyota Yasulwe

Daddy sees much good in daughter
Daddy sees much beauty in you
Daddy sees much ability in you
Daddy sees much love in you
I may not want you to go
But you will go anyway to fulfill good

I see much beauty in you!
As a wild flower in heaven
Or is it heaven in the wild flower
Only if that flower is you
Staring at you in glimpses
Such beauty in your presence
As a peacock tail

I see much good ability in you!
As a book full of knowledge and wisdom
With infinite words in your mind
Only if that book is you
Listening to you for a moment
So enlightened by your words
As an encyclopedia

I see much love in your heart!
As a bird that always sings lovely tunes
Or is it the love stored in your heart
Only if that heart is yours
Being with you even for an hour
Much eternity in an hour
As sea waves

    Wonderful poem from such a loving and devoted father, truly a great tribute to her. Father's do seem to see only the good in their children, raising them with such love and caring, helping them to grow, mature, by nourishing and nurturing their minds and hearts. It sounds like you have done all the right things in caring for your daughter. All the best to you and her in this life. Thank you for sharing, RoseAnn (Report) Reply
