Daughters Of Mine - Poem by Linda Engwall

No one could ever have told you
Painful it is
To watch,
All that your
Children struggle through

Choice they make as the grow
No longer have anything to do with you

At times all you can do is
Stand next to them
And be there when they need you to lean on
Stand behind them quietly
For at times they must stand alone

Hope they will remember
Those countless conversations
When you where there trying to shape their little minds
To somehow be able to handle what life would ultimately bring them

To the day you watch the young man that will break her heart
Hoping she will still leave it open enough to someday try again
Not to be jaded by the “one” that was never going to be the “one”

To hoping that you instilled enough confidence in them
To know that as lovely as it is to have a partner and they will have that too
They are okay all by themselves

My beautiful daughters
You have so much more than just beauty
You are wonderful young women
On a journey of your life
Every day can be an adventure
If always remember you are capable of anything your eyes can see
