Give Her A Day

©

Published: February 2006

What can you give to one small girl?
A diamond ring, a baton to twirl?
A pretty pink dress with lots of bows,
or dainty sandals that show her toes.
A walk in the woods, a romp in the park,
a shopping trip from dusk till dark?
A shine new bike, a kitten for a pet?
No, there's still time for such things,
yet...
Give her a day of her very own.
Just one small girl and her Dad alone.
Give her the gift that only you can,
the companionship of her old man.
Games are outgrown and toys decay,
but she'll never forget
if you give her a day.

The poem has touched very much. The poet has nicely and successfully narrated her feeling toward a child who needs nothing but love. I appreciate the poet and hope to get more poems of this nature from her as the children are somewhat deprived from what she actually needs.

Boy this is so true! I have three daughters of my own, and until they grow into maturity, do they realize the most important thing we can give them is part of ourselves? Love the poem.
