A Daughter Through The Eyes Of A Father - Poem by Velmar Pewee Hale Johnson

(Dedicated to Bww and his 7 yr. Old daughter)

A daughter is beauty at its finest.
Heart of an angel, soul so pure, and sweet.
Daughters are one of God's most precious gifts that he has bestowed upon the world.
Angels in Heaven do not compare to thine beauty, and grace my ever so beautiful, and lovely daughter.
Seeing you at birth brought more joy to me
than all the money in the world could ever do.
You are morning, bright, and shining,
you are noon, you reside at the highest point in my heart,
you are the dew kissed night.
You are my daughter, heart, and soul.

    Very nice poem, and congrats on poem of the day. However, I have both daughters and sons, and sons are just as precious as daughters. All children are sons or daughters of a Heavenly Father and we need to do all we can to love, teach and protect them while they are in our care. (Report) Reply

    Verily, father and daughter are a heavenly relation,
    Pure, divine and next to God.
    A lovely and heart touching poem indeed....10
