Father And Daughter


Father and daughter spend some quiet time together in the living room
Shining through the curtain is the sun
And outside is the glorious afternoon

Father reads to his daughter the poetry she loves
Father and daughter enjoy each other's company
Father takes his daughter by the hand
As they take a walk outside

Father cares for his daughter
And always wishes the very best to happen for her

    I tell my daughters is “The only expectation I have for you is for you to be happy” then I give them a big hug. I will add this poem to my favorites. It is a good poem that sings true to me. I invite you to read my poem “Daughter” (Report) Reply
