Original Poems

The following poems were written by me for my daughter on her Birthdays.

THE SWEETEST BABE
If God had said for me to choose
The sweetest babe in heaven
The one that had the nicest smile
And needed lots of lovin’
The one whose heart would grow
To be the kindest one I knew
I could have searched all heaven Dear
And would still have chosen you.

WHAT IS A DAUGHTER ?
What is a daughter?
So many things, I cannot say
She’s ” Mom loan me a dollar just till payday”
She’s dirty blue jeans, that are always too long
She’s an old folk guitar
Singing a way out song.
She’s smiles and dimples
And everything fine
But most of all …She’s mine.

MY DAUGHTER, A BLESSING
Each passing year reminds me
How blessed I’ve always been
To have you for a daughter
And best of all my friend
You always seem to know
The thoughtful things to do
And being kind just seems to come
Quite naturally to you.
I look forward to the time we spend together
It means so very much you see
Just to have someone to talk to
Or share a laugh with me.
Each night I ask the Lord to keep you in his care
And if upon my life’s page there are any blessings there
To send them every one to you
and all I have in store
For you see my darling daughter
That’s what I saved them for.

CHILDHOOD MEMORIES
Each time your Birthday comes along
The memories go rushing by
Like the times we sang “Go home said the man in the moon”
and “Rocky Mountain High”.
We knew that we weren’t perfect
but we really didn’t care.
For who cared about perfection
When we knew the love was there.
There were the pictures that you drew for me
I treasure them yet today
All memories in which we shared
That time can never take away.
So when at last the good Lord calls me home
And looks up my page of life to see
The things for which I am judged
both right and wrong
and how it is I’ll spend eternity
Tis then He’ll find my faults
a page will fill
and all the times I failed to do His will
But when he turns the page to see
the good I had to do there will be but one great moment there
That’s the day that I had you.

WHEN SHE WAS 21
Well my darling, today you are 21
and it seems like yesterday when I looked around and saw that smiling face looking up to me,ran my fingers through those tousled curls and saw that beautiful smile that said to me “mommie I love you”. I’ve watched you grow from that small sweet child into a beautiful , loving, caring person. For which I thank the Lord, and I must admit there are still times when I would like to hold you in my arms and say to you, “Don’t worry, I’ll kiss the hurt and make it all better. The things of this world will go away.
But your bigger than I am now, and now it’s me that’s looking up into that still beautiful face, that sees that still sweet smile, that says to me” Mother Dear I love you”.
I must let you know how proud I am of you and how much I love you too.
In a few more days, you’ll be holding your own baby in your arms and you’ll be looking down into a small sweet face that says to you ” mommie I love you”. And life’s cycle will begin again.
