A Word About Daughters

Wednesday, February 14, 2018

Valentine’s Day 2018

Daughters can be reckless
with their old dad’s heart
They can smile or cry
their way out of anything
They can ask for money
They will get the money
They can ask for help
They will get it
Daughters can be hasty
But the way they are hasty
Is the same way a butterfly is
or the way a ladybug is
That is to say they know
when to hop mysteriously
from where your hand
is about to land
to over by the curtains
where their beauty is enhanced
They can ask for your life
They will get it instantly
Daughters are scary good
at what they do
