A Daughter is a Daughter

     A daughter is a daughter

 

You have a child


In your early years


With your eyes


Wide open


You fail to see


Your children grow


Up into maturity


A daughter is yours


For all of your life


Even after marriage


As a young mans wife


But a son is a son


In his formative years

A legacy for you of

Heart-break and tears

He marries one day

The girl of his dreams

But the girl that he weds

Is not all that she seems

Possessive and jealous

Of his own mum and dad

 

Of the love that they gave

When he was a lad

So that adage is true

Of the wise men of old

“A daughter”

“Is a daughter”

“For all of her life”

“A son is a son”

Till he takes a wife”
