Daughter To Father


Published by Family Friend Poems November 2006 with permission of the Author.

What I have learned about myself through my Father:

I have the right to speak but not down to my mother
I have to learn respect by earning the same
Anything that goes wrong, I have only myself to blame
You must say your pleases when you ask for a favor
Thank the Lord for your blessings and love thy neighbor
You have to take life one day at a time
Disappointment is not failure, as long as you try
A respectable man is not that of money
It's the ones who can cry and can tell you he's sorry
People will try anything to push you down
You take it with stride and hold your own
I have learned about myself through my Father
To him I say, "Thank you and I love you"
-Your Daughter
