Poem to my daughter

To Brianna

By Sherry Bach


Years ago it came time for your graduation

And I was asked for a song

To play at your presentation

I can't believe all these years are gone

I originally wanted two boys

Then they said it was you

But you weren't making any noise

I panicked and was scared, what could I do

Suddenly you were all right

Seconds seemed like years

Your little eyes shined so bright

Their warmth melted all my fears

You had amazing hair right from the start

Long black piles of it sticking straight up in the air

It turned brown, almost blonde in the front part

Now it's just plain beautiful, the kind that makes you stare

At nine months old it was clear to see

That dancing was one of your loves

Six years of ballet and jazz soon came to be

The routines, the costumes, all fit you like a glove

But life moves us on to other things

Basketball, softball, horses, goats, fiddle lessons and boys

A year is a mystery unfolding as I watch what each brings

A little tears and sorrow, but mostly parental joys

You're strong, funny, talented and smart

And from the moment I heard the word girl

You've had a special piece of my heart

If I had to describe you in one word it would be pearl

Strong, precious and smooth, but willing to be formed

Within the shell of your heavenly father's will

You've had a special purpose since the day you were born

I pray that you discover it and within him let your heart be still

This is truly exquisite, Sherry, and moved me to tears, beautiful, as I'm sure your daughter is also!

Sounds like you have a wonderful daughter. I had to read this because my granddaughter's name is Brianna. She graduated last year. I wrote a poem to her too, but it's nowhere near as good as this. Peace and love to you and your family.
