Daughter's Gone, Daughter's Gone - Poem by Joseph Anderson

Daughter's gone, daughter's gone,
Still my memories linger on;
All those moments through the years
Fraught with anguish, doubts and fears.

Yes, she left before her time,
Changing patterns with life's rhyme;
Left our nest, in love, unschooled
And I judged her sadly fooled.

Seventeen's a fright-filled age,
With emotions on rampage;
There she left, forevermore,
Left the welcome of our door.

Now, she's gone and wedded, schooled,
Leaving me completely fooled.
Though she left before her time,
She's in cadence with life's rhyme.

Now, there's glitter in my tears
And I laugh right through my fears;
Still my memories linger on-
Daughter's gone-Daughter's gone.

    A very beautiful write about your daughter. Gone but not forgotten.
    She has flown from the nest and is soaring high. Lovely.

    when starting to read this poem, i was concerned because I thought that she was really gone - as in GONE. But at the end, I was quite relieved to find out that she was just gone - to build a life of her own. Daughter taught Father a valuable lesson. I had to laugh. Super job. (Report) Reply
