Daughter Poem

Poem About Raising Daughter Alone

With this poem, I have tried to express the happiness and angst of raising a daughter on my own, with the realization that she is growing independently now. Though she will broaden her horizons and occasionally make mistakes, I hope that she will always have a special place in her life for me.

Roses And Butterflies


Published by Family Friend Poems November 2015 with permission of the Author.

"At last! I've finally found happiness," she said.
Roses and butterflies danced in her head.
No more sadness, heartache, or pain,
For this man will make her whole again.

Shortly thereafter this couple would know
That their family of two was about to grow.
"This was not in my plan," he'd told her before.
"No problem," she said. "Our baby needs me more."

Through diapers, training wheels, and braces she grew,
First boyfriend, driving, and graduation, too.
Which college to go to? It was such a hard call!
"I know," said my baby. "I'll apply to them all!"

Two years have gone by now.
My baby has grown.
It's hard to imagine,
She's now on her own.

My place in her life now has changed, I must say.
It's anyone's guess, I just go day by day.

Will she need me? I wonder.
Will she know that I care?
I hope she remembers that I'll always be there.

Through good times and bad times
I hope that she knows
I'll always be with her
Wherever she goes.
