My Daughter

By (Gypsie) Ami Offenbacher-Ferris

Response to word prompt DAUGHTER
provided by The Daily Spur

My daughter born so soft and sweet
Two feet long with tiny feet
Scream and squawk you did not
Lifted your head without a flop

Let me see I could read in your eyes
No baby stuff for you would suffice
Walking around at six months old
Suddenly you had up and grown

Holding hands to cross the road
No way were you going to be told
to slow down and take your time
Not me mom, I can double-time!

And so it went and so it’s gone
my little girl had met someone
Now she has a lovely home
and her own little boy plays and roams
