Daughters – this is one of my very first poems written a number of years ago, it needs some help, but thought I would share it anyway :)

Daughters are a special gift

A blessing and a trial

But ours to hold nonetheless –

If only for a while

And in their eyes, we see ourselves

As once we were young too

But days and years fly by too fast

As they are prone to do,

Soon we find ourselves in our grandma’s shoes

With lovely daughters by our sides, in roles we rarely choose

Our roles reversed, or so it seems

to those who don’t believe

The joy to be my daughter’s child

Until I have to leave

(maybe someday I will rewrite this, it needs it – but I kind of like it the way it is too so…)

  1. I like it. Sometimes it helps me to set aside a poem and revisit it later. Usually something feels off but I can’t put my finger on it. Looks like I’m not alone 😊 I think you did a good job.

  2. Having just come from a visit with my 94 year old mother who is in assisted living now…I like it the way it is. We, her daughters, care for her now, as do others. But she still teaches us every day, about acceptance, grace, and letting go. It’s beautiful to behold.
