Daughter - Poem by Jacqueline Ellison

Hard to believe
You grew up so fast,
Just yesterday
I held you in my arms
And today you are a woman
All grown up.


I was just a kid
When you came along
But never believe
That you were a blunder.

With open eyes
You came into this world
And after sixteen hours
I finally held my prize.

How could you love someone
So much, when we just met?
Life got complicated and
Unfortunately we were separated.

Not a day goes by that
You don't cross my mind.
Now you are a woman
Eager to live your own life.

So I tell you this:
Live life to the fullest,
Love with all your might,
Laugh, cry, make mistakes,
Get back up, No Regrets! !

So when that day comes
And your dance comes
To an end...
You have one hell of
A story to tell.

    Well at least you are not now looking for marks. Sounds and looks like a letter rather than a poem. Read more of the good poems for tips. (Report) Reply
