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.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
