A Beauty of Nineteen ...

A beauty of nineteen
Venturing out
Away from home, alone.
A new adventure waits
Within the walls of academe
For you to grasp
And make your own.

But to me, still three,
You give me that grin
So coy that melts my heart.
Bluest eyes look up at me
From angel's face
By blonde enframed -
I fall.

No fruit of my loins,
My first-born still,
Never to be "Dad"
But doomed and blessed to care
And love another's girl
And wish I could be more
While glad just to be there.

The years pass, we drift apart.
Infrequent texts appear
But rarely does your voice
Come through the phone
To let me share.
Nor do I see you
More than accidentally.
Yet still my first-born girl
Lives on in me.

A beauty of nineteen,
An adult now
And competent to make
Your own path in this world.
D'you think of me?
It matters not, my first-born girl;
I think of you
And here I'll stay and wait
For you.

Thank you all, kind people that you are.

Goddess ... Beautiful? Oh she's that all right - quite the little stunner (which is also a bit of a worry!). Wish I could claim some genetic influence ...

Helga ... I know you do - share some (((hugs))) ?

Our daugter left home last year, when she was 18, to live with her boyfriend , and it had the advantage is was nearer to where she is working and suding ,
we miss hertoo, but we visit every week, and they always comes to sunday dinner.

never had any worries about her , she is a strong determined girl , with a lot of self confidence, and we are very proud that she manages to work, study, run a small household , and helps boyfriend with his two businesses
and her boyfriend is our , "favorite potental son - in law"
