Inside and out
Small but tall
Petite yet firm
Quiet and strong
Long flowing jet black hair
Fair skin rarely touched
Pretty full lips sparingly shared
Heart and soul burned to iron
To battle the world at hand
A brave warrior you have become
Armor surrounds your being
If only I could wisp you away
In both time and space
To when you were just a little girl
To a place worthy of you
When and where you could be
A woman with a trusting heart
With an ocean-wide expansive soul
Free as the wind to become
The woman you were meant to be
Worthy of your love
It’s beautiful! It could just as easily be written by a father who feels he has failed his daughter. Maybe this is the world where you are worthy and all you need is to not suppress or depress your worthiness. ♥
Ha…my daughter…don’t have one. No, this was written for a wonderful woman I love…seperated by thousands of miles, mistakes, and external/internal barriers. But, your intuition could be correct…for I feel for all the young beings now and yet to come…I wish we could lay the foundation for them to grow into powerful and free spirits…take that youthful wonder at the world and allow it to blossom into full potential throughout adulthood…instead of subjecting them to what is….and hoping they can struggle and find some piece or scrap of motivation, purpose, vision or beauty.
Never imagine that your words were only the ones you wrote. You had no way of knowing it, but this poem was written for me. It allowed me to feel a love I’m powerless to feel, to hear my father’s absent pride, to wear the chastity he never saw in me, to feel the devotion he never offered anyone but himself, to wish I could tell him that he was my Daddy and he was always worthy of my love.
For five minutes, you had a daughter. You touched her very deeply.
I see your wisdom…I am so happy my words touched you very deeply…and that I had a daughter for five minutes.
Bold words, my friend. A strong and enduring passion. Absolutely beautiful! Your metaphors are divine 🙂
Thanks VW…you see…I do have a romantic side hidden beneath:)
This took me by surprise. It’s gorgeous.
By surprise? You mean you didn’t think I was capable of a love poem given all the other crap I write about:) LOL…glad you liked it
Beautiful, simply beautiful.
Thank you pretty eye:)
I love, love this one! Reminds me of a couple I know…;) only I don’t have long hair:P
It’s uncanny, really, the timing of this poem. Maybe life is really just one big coincidence.
Well…just as Anne pretended I was her daddy…you can pretend he wrote this to you:)
Things happen for reasons. 🙂
