“Happy Mother’s Day Sierra” A poem for my daughter?


The first and only I will share with you

As I first cut the cord making one from two

Your tiny body almost blue in my hands

Tear in my eye as I became a man

You would love and understand

On this day as you celebrate your first

Unconditional love at its best and worst

With a daughter of your own

Like you were to me

 The greatest treasure ever known

I watched you dream and so many you had

I wished them for you and never wanted to see you sad

From my little Princess you grew

Little squeaky I used to call you

In to the beautiful Woman to be treated like a Queen

My beautiful daughter Sierra Jean

I won’t call you mom except on this day

Although my favorite for you, Blossom I very well may

My gift for you my daughter on this your first day

Happy Mother’s day in my own artistic way

I love you Sierra

That’s what your dad would say

I wanted to share something as I have been spending much of my time with an awards page here as well as working on several other projects soon to be shared. I did have my daughter on my mind and up coming mothers day. I wrote a poem for her I am going to send framed and I wondered before I did so what you thought of the poem? If your dad wrote this for you would it touch your heart?


I thank you for allowing me to share some thoughts and perhaps a smile or two. I also hope we can all look inside and find that smile sharing some love and making our world a better place for all we share it with. Please be the change positive and make our world a better place.
