A Poem to My Daughter the Beauty Within
I look at you and see you smile my heart melts and I feel, both happiness and joy and pain for all we have endured.
For times apart and times at home, together and abroad. I missed you then when you were gone but you came home to me.
While some may say get over it, she’s home and yours to keep. Five years it’s been since you came back but still the pain is deep.
Yes time will heal and scars will fade and memories will dim. Yet deep inside the tear ducts flow for how I feel within.
No compensation big or small can make up for lost time. Let’s not look back but forward march for you my child are mine.
Injustices will happen. We all have trials to bear. Yet ours have been much tougher and not everything is fair.
A sweet sweet child you are my dear and confidence will grow. It’s taken time, to heal and bloom, and slowly it will show.
My brave brave child we will be strong and grow you will me dear. I’ll stand beside you everyday and talk away your fears.
Your beautiful inside and out and though you can’t yet see, one day you’ll learn to love yourself and we can then be free.
