My Daughters

    Poem Commentary

    My heart was broken by my kids' dad and my ex-husband. I sat in the darkness of the pain for way to long. The light was always shining on me, yet I couldn't see it. My daughters loved me, when I was unlovable. They continue to smile and laugh and bring joy to my life. I have made my fair share of mistakes, but through it all I have been blessed. I was crying about my divorce and acting out, and a friend said to me, "YOU DON'T KNOW LOVE UNTIL YOU HAVE BEEN LOVED BY A CHILD." I was like yeah whatever, and I took it for granted. It's true I think, you don't know what love is to you have been loved by a child. My children's love is so unconditional and forgiving, and I love them more than I have ever loved anyone. So here's to them the lights of my life. The light at the end of my tunnel:)

    My Daughters

    My daughters I know now are heaven sent,
    They are the most perfect presents,
    The world stops to enjoy their smile,
    They are so fashionable and full of style,
    Maybe I never really knew love,
    Until God sent me my daughters from above,
    I hold them and give them all that I can,
    Help them when they fall by lending them my hand,
    Time marches on with each new year,
    Watching them grow always brings a tear,
    They are my hope, my everything,
    I can't express the joy they bring,
    They are my sunshine on a rainy a day,
    When I look at them I know everything will be okay,
    So here are some words to express how I feel about the two most beautiful girls,
    To tell them they are my whole world:)

    "They are my hope, my everything, I can't express the joy they bring, They are my sunshine on a rainy a day, When I look at them I know everything will be okay," These lines made me fall in love

    Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.
