This Magical Day


This magical day...your wedding...when I give you a kiss goodbye...
yes, my darling daughter...you'll see your mother cry.

Some of those tears will be of happiness...
seeing you wed such a wonderful guy.

And some of those tears are from yesterdays...remembering my little girl...who grew from a rough neck tom boy...into a precious pearl.

Included are tears of saddness...feeling helpless with your growing pains...wanting always to give you answers...to those questions that might still remain.

I told you then as I do now...that life is an unfinished book...with each new day is a chapter...to stop awhile...and take a look.

For the world is your adventure land...to make happy, prosperous or sad...so make the best of each and every day...to assure in the end...you'll be glad.

All I'll add in advice my darling...on your magical, wonderous day...
is to return all the love the he gives you...in your charming and girlish way.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
