Father And Daughter - Poem by Pete Crowther

I never thought I'd live
One day to see my daughter be
A Human Resources Policy Executive.

But then perhaps
My daughter’d rather
Not have a would-be poet for a father.

    You'll have to ask her Peter, so that you don't ponder on this question. Nice write about something we all dwell on at certain times in our lives. Love Ernestine XXX (Report) Reply

    But I am sure she loves his poetic verse. Fathers and daughters a grand read.
