Daughters Are Not Just Spares! - Poem by shirani ibrahim

Daugthers are not a spare time, neither a part time,
They are not a sometime, they are there all the time
Oh..the baby's breath and that fragrance swiftly went by
The laughter, the joys, the gurgle and the many a cry
Clasping me tight silently you lay so close to my heart
Are all memories that time can never tear it apart
Came the naughty teens the disputes the wondrous days
Are treasured forever and can never decay nor fade away
The hands of clock so insensitively ticks on with every breath
to a sudden reality I look up and you have grown in length
A strength a beaut a prize an everlasting, the shining glory
Making life's journey with pages of a wonderful life story
Disputes difference with sweet memories we have so many
Devoted always at our side and regrets cant think of any
As mother a sister a daughter and a much needed best friend
To rest my heavy head feel your embrace till my days sees its end…
My tired eyes and weak knees that you so quickly comprehend
Pearls of wisdom in my confusion you so kindly lovingly extend
With loving hands you help me, the steps I so carefully take
God bless you daughters an angelic gift God almighty did make!
