Growing Up Poem

Expressing Love And Understanding During Adolescence

My daughter has become a teenager, and I can see every day how hard it is. We just had an argument. I want her to know how much I love her and that I know how she feels, but I just can't fix it. It's all part of growing up.

My Daughter, My Friend


Published by Family Friend Poems May 2013 with permission of the Author.

I see the pain in your eyes and feeling like you do.
I wish I could take it all away and skip these years for you.

Being a teen is so very hard, it really isn't fair
To go through all of this and still feel like no one is there.

You don't have to tell me how you feel, I see it every day,
Like nothing you ever do is good enough, or you're just in the way.

If you could see through my eyes, how confident and true
You becoming a young woman, but still somewhat a youth.

I can't make this feeling go away, I can't fix all of your tears,
But I can tell you that I know the feelings and the fears.

If you ask me how I know all that you are going through,
I will answer simply, I know this all because... I have been there too.
