A daughter is a mirror
The reflection of all facets,
Your hopes, dreams, success, failures.
Shifting from care taker and teacher
Looking up to a young woman,
With her own hopes, dreams, success.
A desire to shelter from failure
Yet, knowing that is where the great lessons can lie,
You know that you would walk miles
And be anywhere with her.
Purpose shifted from self to more
Everything matters now,
All the influences can make or break her life
You'll fight for everything
So she may have the best of
Hopes, dreams, and success....
