Did I give her all the things she needs?


Did I give her all the things she needs?

Did I give her all the strength to fly?image

To love, to laugh, to live, to cry

Did I give her all the things she needs? image

To earn, to respect, to fight, to be free

Did I teach her well, did I do it right?

Who knows for sure, I gave all my might.

Common sense tells me she’ll be alright.

Did I give her all the needed time?

To be young, to grow up, to have her own mind

Did I know it would go so crazy fast?

From birth to adult seems like a fleeting glimpse

Did I know what a gift she’d bring?   image

To my soul, my daughter gives me wings

A diamond that is hard to find

  8. Nimue led me here, and so glad she did. As a mother of a daughter, I feel your pride in every word of this poem. And yes, there is self-doubt all along the way. Truth is, the wings she sprouts are uniquely hers. Whether the first pair is made of wax and she stumbles, or whether they are the ideal first pair that are made to last, either way, we all do our best.

    And here is a poem about my Riley – quite different from your own experience, but showing that same love:
