My Daughters

                                    My Darling Daughters

I know you were sent to me from above,
I taught you to talk, I taught you to walk. I taught you to love.
I’ve always been there to comfort you,
But you have been there for me too!
I remember holding you as a children,
You laughed and giggled and always had smiles,
I’ve thought of you as my best friends,
On you I know I can always depend.

My beautiful daughters,  You cannot know
How much my heart breaks
As I watch you grow,
From womb to womanhood you have grown
Always my daughters
And special to me.

Love is passed
And love received
To be passed on again:
So may our love be.
A hundred thousand years;
Mothers and daughters,
Daughters and mothers,
Through joys and  tears.

After all I’m your Mom,
I hope that I have made it clear,
That you are my daughters and I love you dear.

As you grow older
You will see
Through the eyes of a mother
Reflections of me
Past, present and future
All intertwined
My mother, your mother
All daughters you’ll find
Our reflections, not vanity
Mirrored in lives we share.
Always a daughter
Your mother, who cares.
