A tribute to my daughters from a proud Dad



Daughters, girls like mine

Sweeter then ever

So smart so divine

Beautiful and clever

A college education to claim

A bachelors degree with their name

A voice like Beyonce, so sweet

Faces like angels indeed
 
Blood sisters as talented as can be

With a will so strong and free

Powerful and realistic once they disagree

Neither one will give in easily

And yet bound by a power so strong

The love they shared for each other so long

Strength from each other they drew

While to beautiful women they grew

The love that they share for me

And our diversed wonderful family

Two girls so unique and yet so close

To wonderful women they rose

As I watched sometimes from far away

And then close up, praying they'll choose the right way

They grew developed and advanced so great

Knowing a loving Dad will patiently wait

For two daughters a precious gift of life

For whom he would strive

To be the best Dad they could find

Just like them, one of a kind

It all worked out for us in the end

I'm more than a Dad, I'm also a friend

And I'm happy and proud

To call it out loud

Those Angels are mine

Their hearts are pure and divine

And all their life they had

One happy Dad!

(and two happy Moms J )

WOW!! Once again you have ever seemed to amaze me I am lost for words and cant describe the affect this poem has on me. God bless you both with the same expression that you give me and the world. It is so precious to have the love for your children and not just be a father but a friend. Sometimes as parents we forget to be friend. When we become a friend then they will trust and open up their most embarrassing and well kept secrets. I am amazed once agin, your fan Aleja bennett

Daddy, You are my father and my friend. Nicki and I are lucky to have a Daddy like you. We thank you from the bottom of our heart for bringing a wonderful mother, Birgit,in our lives, too make our lives complete with one happy Dad and two happy Moms. Imagine me kissing you on your cheek right now, like a little girl who adores her daddy. Daddy is a much sweeter word than Dad or Father. So no matter how old I get, you will always be Daddy to me.
I love you and Birgit with all my heart.....always and forever!!!!!
#1 Daughter,

A precious tribute, Roger. I think it is love that compels us to "brag." I have two daughters and a son and I feel the same way you do. Thank you for sharing this offering. Love and peace to you,

I don't have a sister and always missed not having one. But my grand daughters have a strong bond. Great tribute to your daughters. I'm sure that they love you just as much. Thanks for sharing.
