Daughter Poems

Poems for and about Daughters

In many traditional cultures, fathers and mothers would pray for a boy who would be able to help in the field. In these cultures, the value of daughter was not understood. A father has a special relationship with his daughter as she will judge all men by his standard. A mother's task is to show her daughter the complex task of growing into a woman. We no longer live in an agricultural society and woman are free to accomplish intellectually and occupationally what they couldn't in the past. A daughter may one day play the role of mother and wife. Raising a daughter is an infinite gift.

  1. 1. See What I See

    I wrote this for my beautiful 16-year-old daughter! She struggles so hard with self-esteem issues! I'm sure many of you moms understand.

    If you could see what I see when I look at you,
    You'd definitely love you, too.
    You would hold your head up high,
    For you possess beauty that no one can deny.

    I have been fortunate to be surrounded by very special women: my beautiful wife, my gorgeous daughter, and two magnificant step-daughters. I included the poem in my book, "Poetic Diversities."

    Into my world awaiting God's gift.

  12. 10. A Daughter's Blessing

    This poem is a profession of faith for my daughter. There is a very wise verse in the Bible that says that we should "speak those things that are not as though they were." For what we speak about our children is what will come to pass, whether our words are positive or negative. Our faith words can cause great things to happen... God Bless

    Today is the beginning
    Of God's perfect plan anew
    And from here you'll grow and nurture
    All the gifts inside of you

  13. 11. Looking At My Child

    I struggled with post-natal depression for 2 1/2 years after my 1st and only child was born. The bond between us was weakened through this terrible illness. After being given the all clear, I went on to wrestle with feelings of guilt for not being as good a mother as I could have been. I wrote this poem when I was feeling my very best after going through all of this. I hope you enjoy it as it came straight from my heart. I wouldn't be without my baby for the world. I now know I have nothing to be feeling guilty for.

    I look at my child as she looks at me,
    And into her eyes I look and I see
    The innocence that fills her unspoiled soul.
    These moments I wish I could treasure and hold.

  14. 12. She's Not A Baby Anymore!

    • By Will Means
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2018

    We always hear how quickly children grow up. This is a poem about a father-daughter bond, and that no matter how old the daughter gets, she'll always be her daddy's baby girl.

    She's not a baby anymore.
    It's a happy kind of sad
    When baby girl turns to daughter
    And Da-Da turns to Dad.

  15. 13. Mommy's Little Angel

    • By Amber Clark
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2015

    Something unexpected happened to me at a young age. I got pregnant at 18. I thought my life was over and I would be alone, but as soon as I saw my baby I forgot about all the bad things in life because now I had to be a mom and be there for what's mine. I am a single mom, but I know God will be there during the hard times, so I take it as a blessing in disguise. My baby is my angel.

    When I look at you, what do I see?
    I see you as a mini me...

    The way you laugh, cry, and whine...

  16. 14. You Are God's Glorious Gift!

    • By Lalitha A. Mishra
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2019

    God put years in my life; she put life in my years...my daughter! When she gurgled in my arms as a newborn, I was ecstatic! When her baby lips called "mamma," my heart did cartwheels. When she clutched my thumb tight on her first day of school, I felt a pang too. With her achievements, my chest swelled with pride. With her disappointments, I was crestfallen too. Now, watching the chrysalis emerging into a butterfly, a rainbow of emotions envelops me. Truly, as a daughter grows, a mother glows!

    D azzling is your smile; it lights up my way
    A s I go about my mundane chores every day.
    U nfailingly, I look forward to our daily chat.
    G enuine and deep is our bond, I believe that.

    you've stood your ground when you could have taken the fall.

    •  Published by Family Friend Poems January 2016

    This poem was written over the course of my daughter's first eighteen years of life. She was my dream come true, and on her third birthday her brother was born, making her the proudest big sister in the world! I started this poem in her very first birthday card and added a new stanza every year until her latest birthday (in the same card). She recently graduated high school and plans to pursue a career in nursing. She is a nurturer and an amazing daughter! I love you, Jenna, bigger than the sky!

    For the first time, I saw your face,
    And in my heart you filled that space.

    • By David Austin

    My 2-year-old daughter was diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer and lung cancer 1 week after her second birthday. It's been a difficult 9 weeks and not even half way through treatment! We almost lost her on PICU during this early stage due to internal bleeding, but with her strength and the doctors she defied the odds. Six more months of intensive chemo coupled with a liver transplant of which I am the donor and hopefully my girl will be free of this disease.

    Is unlike anything else
    It makes you happier
    Than life itself

    A mother-daughter relationship must be delicately balanced and painstakingly cared for.

    A daughter to a mother is like a diamond in the rough.
    A mother to a daughter sometimes makes life rough.
    She'll always be your little girl, no matter what path she takes.
    You'll often want to help her in decisions that she makes,
