A Daughter’s Gift


Part three of three poems I wrote many moons ago. If you missed part one or part two here they are :  A Mother’s Gift     A Father’s Gift

A Daughter’s Gift

I am too small to  speak

And I am still oh so weak

I don’t understand what you are saying

I will try to figure It out while I am playing

Don’t know what it is, but I’m missing something

From what you say daddy, she’s in Heaven with wings

I know I cry and I pout

But daddy, I am just trying to figure out

How someone could be taken away

Without me hearing one word she would say

I can hear the care and love in your voice

Even when I am making all this noise

You don’t know this but I hear you cry

When you think you are alone, I hear you ask why

Just promise me you will love me no matter what

And I’ll try to remember things I already forgot

If I remember right, mommy left so I could live

I won’t let you or her down , that’s the gift I give

    1. no, she did not. It was a dream I had when she was pregnant 21 years ago. ( A Mother’s Gift is the first one if you haven’t read it) It was my first wife. You must well say she died 5 years later because she left and went to FL and I raised her as a single dad for 3 years until I met my current wife, who I have been with for 11 years this June.

      1. Robert, my husband told me when I was 6-months pregnant with our son that he no longer wanted to be married…not to me, anyway. He moved out when our son was 5 days old…on Valentine’s Day. He remarried a month after the divorce was final, a year later. That was 25 years ago. I’ve been a single mom to my daughter and son ever since.
