A Birthday Sonnet For My Daughter

October 25, 2012

You, daughter, and I are apart
By physical distance.
By directions of the heart.
By life’s circumstance.

By twists and turns
Caused by poor choices made;
By hard lessons not learned;
By words said and unsaid.

Yet in my heart, mind and soul,
You dwell with me.
Everywhere I go,
You’re with me constantly.

No matter how far apart we may roam
In my heart you’ll always have a home.

As you take the bread/
and water, I learn how far/
apart we still are.

I would this ev’en,/
even though we are so far/
apart, we could touch.
