To My Daughter

By John SwanPublished 3 months ago 1 min read

I've watched you grow.

Thinking I had it all figured out.

We've done his once already.

What could possibly be different?

At the beginning we were the best of friends

As time went on we both changed

Some of my darkest moments

Waiting just around the corner.

How to reach out to you

How to prepare you for the world out there

All of it while realizing you're just like me

Hoping you'll turn out as a better version of me

And now you've crossed the threshold.

You're waiting on your chance to take on the world.

I'll always be here to help

Always here to listen and guide

Hoping the past doesn't impact today

Hoping the future has brighter days ahead

Wishing one day you'll know

Just how much I would change the world just for you
