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.

    I have this little angel. For me she left her wings.
    She has no idea how much happiness she truly brings.
    She brightens up my days with her smiles and her laughs.
    She helps me to remember all the blessings that I have.

    Do you know how much you mean to me?
    As you grow into what you will be.
    You came from within, from just beneath my heart.
    It's there you'll always be, though your own life will now start.

    She's a joy, she's an angel- well that's what she thinks
