Daughter Poem

This is a poem I sent to my beautiful 21 year old daughter who is out there finding her way in life. I wanted her to know that she is never alone and always has her old dad on her side. She is a wonderful sensitive soul and I am so proud to have her as my child on this life.

There Is No Map To The Journey Of Life.

Published: August 2008

There is no book to the journey of life, and the road you are destined be mother or wife, will seem at times to have bedrock of fear but never forget sweat pea, I am always near.

Watch for the souls who like trees root in soil, for fear that their heart is the thing they will spoil. Don't let them lead you to alleys of dark, where you'll be forced to protect your light and your heart.

Some live as victors and challenge the past, some never get there and live as a cast. I know of life that the road is not clear, but you have your dad Claire, I am always here.

There is no map to the journey of life, so live to be whole, not just girlfriend or wife. Souls like ours need pasture and plane, and your soul, my love, will be restless, again and again.

As you journey ahead your spirit will speak, it is for home you are heading, it is home that you seek. Where that is only you can find, let your heart lead the way and just follow behind.

While I am out here ahead in some way, I hope the signs I write, you'll find on your way. Read them and do what you will, at the end of the day it's your heart to fulfill.

If there was a book to the journey of life, yours would be bound with the pain of my strife. It would heal and protect and ease your pain, and help you find your feet again.

The words would be written with the depth of my love and never forget I am with you, be it on earth or above.

Dad xx

I also have a 21 years old daughter who is out there in college and finding her path and struggles and all I can do is tell her I am here if you need me. If you should get tired and wonder why this or that...just remember I am a phone call away. Yes, this poem did touch me. Cause I can relate to it. My daughter is very special to me. Age doesn't matter, she will always be my little one forever. I am a proud mom. She has come a very long way. She's smart, and a fighter. Sets goals and meets them. Sometimes, trips over road stones that are just meant to be there to learn something in life's path. May many more parents relate to this story...poems. God bless.
