My Little Girl
I will never forget that November day,|
It doesn’t seem so long ago,
Yet it has been 17 years, already,
And my life has changed more than you know.
Although, we don’t live together,
I miss you more every day,
Things don’t always go the way we plan,
I’m sorry; It had to be this way,
But I’ve watched you grow and learn,
And I am so proud of the choices you make,
You are smart and talented, and oh so cute,
And always give more than you take,
And though I am not there, right now,
That’s not how I wanted it to be,
I am always here for you, Sweetheart,
Because you’re; 'more than a Daughter to me'
For Jenica, on her 17th birthday
My entry for the challenge:
'more than a ________ to me'
In my poem: My Little Girl.
