Step Daughter - Poem by Bee Kilpatrick

First time I saw you sitting there like a nervous little angel ready to fly away
First time I talked to you I encouraged you to stay
First time I saw you smile, it made me smile too
Now I look into your eyes, I think I know something about love too


First time I held your little hand, seemed like I had a friend for life in you
First time you told me about your momma I felt your love for her too
First time you jumped on my back I felt the beginning of love for you
Now I look into your eyes, I think I know something about love too

First time I taught you something, you taught me something too
First time I told you have a wonderful blessed morning, you told me to have one too
First time you said good night to me, I said good night to you
Now I look into your eyes, I think I know something about love too

Oh it’s been many a years and your still that little girl I knew
You fell in love with him before I really knew, just like I fell in love with you
When you went away to school I told you, you are a precious gift from God and you said so are you
And now I have got them you are all grown and left me
Miiss my baby blues

    in last stanza i spy a couple of typos. and what are the them which you got? do you mean your 'step daughter'/her baby blue eyes has/have become part of your life? and now she has left you? maybe she'll be back to visit her dear stepfather. we hope so! !

    lovely sentiments. i wish i could say the same about my stepdaughter, but she had left her mom's nest before i showed up.

    bri ;)

    i'll look at one more. welcome to PH, in case you are new.
