Dear Daughters


I protected you when you were little
Will continue to be there whenever you need me
Whether you need an ear, a shoulder, im there
My job as your mom will never be done

But hear this...you are young adults now
I can never protect you from hurt, dissapointments,
Many other things you will experience,
But somehow i know, you will be okay.

I taught you of the good and bad out there
I taught u to be strong, brave, loving and loyal,
To be curious and to be free
Amongst many others things

Take that along with your journeys in life
Know that I love you so much
Will be watching over you, always
As my mom watched over me

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I have two teenage daughters and i see them going through what society has to offer.i am aware of the fact that i have to let them go through certain issues by themselves...thus far, i am extremely proud of the choices they made and how they handle problems, but i know there will come a time of confusion for them...we all went through them...i just hope and pray i set them up with enough tools to concure the world and come out strong, healthy minded women.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
