Love For My Daughters

© Debra L. Cash
My beautiful daughters, I was blessed with two of you...
You will never know how proud I am of all the things you do.

You came into my world, so tiny and so small...
And I was in awe at the wonder of it all.

Then you placed your little hand in mine...
There was no denying, my heart was yours 'til the end of time.

I have watched you both throughout the years, laugh, cry and grow...
And it is difficult to know that someday I will have to let you go.

I just can't imagine a day of my life without you...
Because you're a part of me and my love for you is true.

So just remember, no matter how old you are or where you may be...
There's someone who needs you and loves you and that someone is me!

  • This was really great to read because I have never seen a poem that would include both my girls.
    It made me cry, because it was like I wrote the words myself.

  • I have been blessed with 2 daughters as well as 2 sons. I love them all the same. But you know the old saying, "Daddy's little girl" Well my girls are just that. Watched them from the time they were born, and now they are 2 beautiful young ladies. They have been a blessing to my soul, as I pray I have for them. I Know I don't have many more years before me as I have behind me, but I treasure them and each moment I have them.

  • Really a heart touching poem. I am father of 2 daughters. The line of poem "And it is difficult to know, that someday I will have to let you go" is very disturbing but it's truth and cannot be denied. In fact all parents wait for that day and wish their daughters for happy married life. That parting is very painful but true happiness from inside with blessings for their daughters.

  • This poem truly touched me because as a Mom of two beautiful daughters, my youngest will graduate college in 4 months and I couldn't be more proud. My oldest graduated from college 2 years ago. While this may sound trivial to most, it has been quite a struggle with rising costs of tuition etc. Both of my daughter's proved to be the outstanding women I knew in my heart they would grow up to be. I couldn't ask for more. They've struggled, worked hard and persevered while working and going to classes back to back. Well done my girls, well done. MOM

  • You have two lovely grown daughters and watching them grow up has been the joy of my life. Sometimes you do have that age where mother doesn't know anything, but as they mature they become your friend and confidante. I am proud to say and they have grown up to be a beautiful smart independent women. they are my heart they are my soul. Now they each have a daughter of their own and I look forward to watching their relationship grow into something as special as ours. So thank you very much for writing this poem it's something that I want to say, but didn't quite know how, you have said it much better than I ever could. I'm going to share this time with them.

  • Indeed the poem pours out my heart as a mother of 3 girls. They are 8, 4 & 3. Though they are still young but I wish they would understand my love and anxiety for them as they grow each year. I want them to know that they are my most precious gifts from God and I love them so much.

  • This touched my heart so much. Because I lost both of my daughters. Melinda at 1 month old 1978 and my other daughter Joy at 29 yrs. old 2009.
    There isn't a day that goes by that my heart isn't broken and I miss them terrible. This is exactly how I feel about my Precious Daughters.
    Thank you for allowing me to write this.
    Live like there is no tomorrow Always..Always say I Love You Always..

  • I am proud father of two daughters. I choked when I read the lines "And it is difficult to know, that someday I will have to let you go" - because I have gone through that once with my elder daughter's marriage last year and still coping. I will have to go through that once more in a couple of years, I guess. My Daughters are really my precious treasures God Almighty has blessed on me.
