*******************A Womans Insight*************1978


i felt a slight twinge in my heart
that deep down burning feeling tearing me apart.
i thought that it would go away
but now i know it's here to stay.

that feeling of when i look at my childs
picture at night.
and i go to her room to make
sure she's allright.
to see that smile upon her face
and i know she's dreaming of satin and lace.

i go back to bed, and all i could see
my little girls eyes burning thru me.
telling me of things that she will need
when she reaches puberty.

then she will reach that stage in life
when she herself will become a wife.

this is the part of life that a parent must bear
this is the part that they have to share.
to give their little girl to another
and wait for her to become a mother.

to see her go through the same stages in life
to have to go thru those struggles and strife.

now when she looks into her little childs eyes
she'll get that same feeling by and by.
and she'll know it was passed down the line.

    Oh, Louis, that is a very wonderful message to your daughter! I am touched for that fatherly love... Not all fathers in the planet are like you!

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
