86 Beautiful Poems For Daughters

1. For My Daughter
Looking into my daughter’s eyes I read
Beneath the innocence of morning flesh
Concealed, hintings of death she does not heed.
Coldest of winds have blown this hair, and mesh
Of seaweed snarled these miniatures of hands;
The night’s slow poison, tolerant and bland,
Has moved her blood. Parched years that I have seen
That may be hers appear: foul, lingering
Death in certain war, the slim legs green.
Or, fed on hate, she relishes the sting
Of others’ agony; perhaps the cruel
Bride of a syphilitic or a fool.
These speculations sour in the sun.
I have no daughter. I desire none.

– Weldon Kees

2. Prayer For My Daughter
I have walked and prayed for this young child an hour
And heard the sea-wind scream upon the tower,
And under the arches of the bridge, and scream
In the elms above the flooded stream;
Imagining in excited reverie
That the future years had come,
Dancing to a frenzied drum,
Out of the murderous innocence of the sea.

May she be granted beauty and yet not
Beauty to make a stranger’s eye distraught,
Or hers before a looking-glass, for such,
Being made beautiful overmuch,
Consider beauty a sufficient end,
Lose natural kindness and maybe
The heart-revealing intimacy
That chooses right, and never find a friend.
— W. B. Yeats, poets.org

3. My baby, my child,
I love everything about you.
I love you all the time,
Even when you act wild.

Even when you cannot love yourself,
I wish you happiness, love, joy, and health.
I worry about you because I cannot imagine a life without you,
Do not ever forget that no matter where this life takes you,
I will be here cheering you on, ready to love you with open arms.

4. Born Yesterday
Tightly-folded bud,
I have wished you something
None of the others would:
Not the usual stuff
About being beautiful,
Or running off a spring
Of innocence and love —
They will all wish you that,
And should it prove possible,
Well, you’re a lucky girl.

But if it shouldn’t, then
May you be ordinary;
Have, like other women,
An average of talents:
Not ugly, not good-looking,
Nothing uncustomary
To pull you off your balance,
That, unworkable itself,
Stops all the rest from working.
In fact, may you be dull —
If that is what a skilled,
Vigilant, flexible,
Unemphasised, enthralled
Catching of happiness is called.
— Philip Larkin

5. When you were little,
You and I always talked about your day.

Years later, though, it’s not every day,
We still talk about your day.

And I’m glad to hear you,
Just know, my sweet daughter,
I always love you.

6. A Newborn Girl At Passover
Consider one apricot in a basket of them.
It is very much like all the other apricots–
an individual already, skin and seed.

Now think of this day. One you will probably forget.
The next breath you take, a long drink of air.
Holiday or not, it doesn’t matter.

A child is born and doesn’t know what day it is.
The particular joy in my heart she cannot imagine.
The taste of apricots is in store for her.
— Nan Cohen, poets.org

7. My daughter is my everything,
She means the world to me.
She’s like a little flower,
And busy as a little bee.
Daughters are the sunshine,
That comes after the rain.
A bright beacon of hope,
When not much joy remains.
Daughters are blessings,
A rare coveted few.
And few love their daughters,
The way I love you.

8. Morning Song
Love set you going like a fat gold watch.
The midwife slapped your footsoles, and your bald cry
Took its place among the elements.

Our voices echo, magnifying your arrival.
New statue. In a drafty museum, your nakedness
Shadows our safety. We stand round blankly as walls.

I’m no more your mother
Than the cloud that distills a mirror to reflect its own slow
Effacement at the wind’s hand.

All night your moth-breath
Flickers among the flat pink roses.
I wake to listen: A far sea moves in my ear.

One cry, and I stumble from bed, cow-heavy and floral
In my Victorian nightgown.
Your mouth opens clean as a cat’s. The window square

Whitens and swallows its dull stars. And now you try
Your handful of notes;
The clear vowels rise like balloons.

— Sylvia Plath, poetryfoundation.org

9. You laugh with me,
When I am hearty and happy.
My dear you cry with me,
When it is the smallest and saddest thing.

Thanks for being such a wonderful daughter that you are,
Always shine like the brightest star!

10. My Girl
She’s the air that I breathe.
She’s the beat in my heart.
She’s the tear in my eyes
when we’re apart.

She’s the pride that I feel,
with all she achieves.
I’m the one who gives hope,
in what she believes.

She’s a part of my body,
but now she’s all grown.
as she waves me goodbye,
to find a life of her own.

My beautiful girl,
you’ve grown up so fine.
So proud am I
to know that you’re mine.

— Toni Kane

11. She does everything without any reason,
She is just the same in every season.
She cares and does not make you feel,
She does everything for you with great zeal.
You do not have to tell her anything,
She is the sparkle of life, a very cute bling!

12. An Angel Left Her Wings
I have this little angel. For me she left her wings.
She has no idea how much happiness she truly brings.
She brightens up my days with her smiles and her laughs.
She helps me to remember all the blessings that I have.

Her face, it is so perfect, she’s sweet and soft and pure.
Sometimes she can be willful and sometimes she is demure.
She tries her very hardest to please and do what’s right.
She gives the greatest hugs from morning until night.
— Tina M. Marascia

13. Every time I look at your pretty face,
It reminds me of my old days.
It feels amazing to see my own image in front of me,
It is just that you are prettier than I could ever be.

You are beautiful, my dear, and so is your heart,
Your mind is even wonderful, so clean yet unbelievably smart.
I am so proud to see you grow into such a lovely woman,
You, dear daughter, are the best gift to me God has ever given.

14. “B” (If I Should Have A Daughter)

If I should have a daughter, instead of mom, she’s going to call me Point B,

because that way she knows that no matter what happens,
at least she can always find her way to me.

And I am going to paint the Solar Systems on the backs of her hands,
so she has to learn the entire universe before she can say ‘Oh, I know that like the
back of my hand’

And she’s going to learn that this life will hit you,
hard,
in the face,
wait for you to get back up, just so it can kick you in the stomach
but getting the wind knocked out of you is the only way to remind your lungs
how much they like the taste of air.

There is hurt, fear that cannot be fixed by band aids or poetry
so the first time she realizes that Wonder Woman isn’t coming
I’ll make sure she knows she does not have to wear the cape all by herself
because no matter how wide you stretch your fingers,
your hands will always be too small to catch all the pain you want to heal.

— Sarah Kay

15. My Little Daughter And Me
We lay on the ground in the tall green grass
And looked at the blue, blue sky.
We watched the drifting of snowy clouds
My little daughter and I
Then I noticed a shape like a fleecy lamb
Among the mounds of white
I pointed it out to her searching eye
And heard her cry of delight.
Soon she was seeing many forms
In the clouds up over her head
A kitten, an angel, a ghost, a tree
A child and a funny shaped bed
Her imagination knew no bounds
And the discovery became a game
As the clouds drifted and shifted away
No shape remained the same
So life will change her path and mine
But always that memory will be
Clearly etched of that happy day
For my little daughter and me

— Marian Wheaton, poemist.com

16. A Treasure

A daughter is a treasure, that’s true
When you’re down and feeling blue
You look into her smiling eyes
And you will find your spirits rise.

She can give you a smile
That can make life worthwhile
She has a way
That makes your day.

Be thankful for this little one
She will bring into your life lots of fun
She will love and care for you
Because that is what daughters always do.

— Catherine Pulsifer

17. Grow up pretty and confident, my girl,
You have the will to go so far.
See the meanings of things that matter,
For those will take you where you are.

See positive insights in life,
That will help you to strive forever.
Try my girl if you have the wish to do,
Nobody can really stop you.

Just be who you want to be,
And life will be so merry.
You stay close to my heart and near,
I love you a lot, my daughter dear.

Short Poems About Daughters

Poems need not always be long and complicated. Tell your daughter and praise her through these short paeans.

18. My Daughter’s First Week
the quietness
where the child is—seems uneven
within limits—of fragile lightshadows: emptiness!—for
the world Grows
in her—to Listen
to Itself
in its Fullness
22 January 1983
— Gennady Aygi, poets.org

one who sticks with you to the end.

who has a sunny disposition.
A daughter is a gift from above
one whom we will always love.

— Catherine Pulsifer

21. You are full of so many colors,
It always fills me with so much wonder.
Red as a rose, blue as a bird,
Yellow as straw, white as the sky.
So many colors make you who you are,
In my eyes, you are my star.

22. If It Be A Daughter
If it be a daughter,
Teach her to be as gentle as the dew at dawn
Settling on a blade of grass;
Show her the grandeur in a ragged leaf.
And in a winding road,
And in a single star.
Teach her to be forgiving, tolerant and kind;
For kindness is lovelier than any glittering gown
Or any silver slipper.

— J. B. Cohan

23. On the day you were born,
You were the cutest thing,
In my life.
And as you got older,
You were still my cutie pie.
No matter what you did,
I still loved you,
And to this day, I feel the same.

My darling, girl

24. Dear Daughter Of Mine
Dear daughter of mine
Let’s spend time down by
the lake, and watch the frogs
hop from place to place, and
giggle at the geese as they
make their noisy honks
and eeks. And know that I will
always love you.

— Alek Mielnikow, hellopoetry.com

25. My darling girl,
I love you more than words can tell.
And each day as you grow,
My one desire is for you to know,
That all who meet you wish you well.

26. You are an angel, my dear, an angel you’re to us,
An angel who has been sent from heaven on earth.
You were wrapped in silver paper and placed in a beautiful basket,
You looked like this lovely jewel or a diamond placed in a casket.
God sent you to us, and we promised him we’ll treat you right,
Because you were a gift sent to us under the stars in moonlight.
We love you, little daughter, for you’re an angel from heaven.

27. Seasons

A mother and daughter go through the seasons of life together,
Both of them growing making each better
Sharing the ups and downs,
Fooling around, acting like a clown.
Experiencing life’s highs
And, at times a few sighs
But nothing can come between these two
There is a bond that is solid and true.

— Kate Summers

28. Your one smile brightens up my whole day,
I really don’t have any words to say.
You came into my life at a time when it was dark,
You have added a new spark.
It’s lovely to have a daughter like you,
I think I am like the blessed few!

29. Untitled
when my daughter is living in my belly
i will speak to her like
she’s already changed the world
she will walk out of me in a red carpet
fully equipped with the knowledge
that she’s capable of
anything he sets her mind to.

Without you, I won’t survive.
Love you, my daughter!

You inspire me to become a better man

So this is why when I think of you,
Joy of my life,
I smile

My pretty daughter!

If I could have prophesied such longing,
I would have stayed with you,
gazing on you constantly
as into a shining mirror.

seeing the cranes that cry there incessantly:
such is my longing for you.

39. The Birthday Present

When I heard your first cry,
My joy was immeasurable.
I then thanked God
You’ve been my greatest treasure.

I carried you in my arms
Crooned you to sleep.
I was so vigilant
My words and acts of love, in your heart to keep

When you went to your first school
I was there at the door.
Peeping if everything was fine
In life, I wanted you to learn more.
Years passed by
Your world’s become wider
Accompanied by circles of friends
Then one day, you found your lover.
You’ve got your own decisions
Mine here is merely to guide
But how can I always be there for you
When some secrets you learned to hide.
I just wish I could have been
Still your best friend, confidant and mentor
In good and the bad times
I’d run quick as your savior.
As I look forward to my birthday
The time just like I heard your first cry,
Anticipating your loveliest present for me
That makes me the happiest, not sigh!
— Ethel Mendoza Agbay

40. For A Daughter Who Leaves

A woman weaves
her daughter’s wedding
slippers that will carry
her steps into a new life.
The mother weeps alone
into her jeweled sewing box
slips red thread
around its spool,
the same she used to stitch
her daughter’s first silk jacket
embroidered with turtles
that would bring luck, long life.
She remembers all the steps
taken by her daughter’s
unbound quick feet:
dancing on the stones
of the yard among yellow
butterflies and white breasted sparrows.
And she grew, legs strong
body long, mind
independent.
Now she captures all eyes
with her hair combed smooth
and her hips gently
swaying like bamboo.
The woman
spins her thread
from the spool of her heart,
knotted to her daughter’s
departing wedding slippers.

— Janice Mirikitani, poets.org

41. I loved you before I met you.
I loved you when you gave me morning sickness.
I loved you when you kept me up at night screaming.
I loved you when you had nightmares.
I loved you when you took your first steps, when you scraped your knee, when you said you hated me.
I will love you through your heartbreaks, through your hardships, and through your hard-headed moods.
I will love you forever, and a day more.

42. In Your Heart
He was so proud of his little girl.
It was her very first day of school.
He walked with her to school that day,
And she held his hand all the way.
They walked together quiet and sad,
A little girl and her loving dad.
Into the school her father led,
But he almost cried when she said,
“Daddy, Daddy, please don’t go.
Don’t leave me here all alone.
I’ll miss you if you go away,
And I might need you; can’t you stay?”
“Little Daughter, please don’t cry.
You’ll be okay, so dry your eyes.
You have our memories in your heart.
We’re together though we’re apart.”

— Thomas S. Carver

43. No matter how old you are,
Or what you have done.
No matter what goals you’ve set,
Or how many things you’ve won.
You’ll always be my baby,
My cherished little girl.
I love you more than anything,
More than all the world.

44. I Am Yours To Keep

You are a princess in my heart,
and I care for you so much.
I love the fondness in your eyes,
and your tender little touch.

I looked at you when you were born,
and knew then straight away,
that I would be fore ever here
to watch you grow and play.

You bring to me a heart of joy,
and memories so great,
and a powerful sense of fatherhood
that no one can debate.

I watch you sleep and dream of things
that I can only wonder.
That innocent look upon your face
just makes my heart grow fonder.

— Mike Qyinn

45. My sweet girl,
You are a blessing.
The most wonderful part of my life,
And the one person,
I love above all others.

You are my light, my world,
And the reason to exist.
As you grow,
I pray you’ll know,
I love you so.

46. She Is Awake
She is awake
The day starts
No matter if I have been up for hours
I have had my time
She is awake
The day starts
My heart walking around sleepily
Pajama pants dragging
Hair wild
Eyes closed as she stumbles and falls onto the couch
The dramatics of a ten year old
Are adorable
Endearing
She is awake
The day starts

— Jenny Justice

47. From the day that you were born,
And I held you very close,
I knew in my joyful heart,
That you’re my very precious rose.

My life changed for the better,
I felt it in my heart.
I just knew, for the rest of my life,
We’d never be apart.

Months and years have passed,
And I watched you mature and grow,
I promised myself, forever,
My love for you, I’ll show.

I wish you a beautiful life,
Filled with joy and infinite bliss.
I’ll always be your mother,
And my precious rose, I kiss.

48. Darling Daughter
I have loved you my darling daughter
Before I saw you on a screen
Before I felt you in my tummy
Before I saw your light beam

I have loved you in the ether
Before I was placed upon the earth
I have loved you as I walked my path
Awaiting your divine birth

I have loved you before I knew
The weight of what your life would bring
Before I held you against my chest
And heard your little lungs scream

Before my Oma placed you in my arms
The night we met inside of a dream
I have loved you then and now
And every moment in between

— Rachel Rouse

49. You are the beat of my heart,
You have been special right from the start.
You are the sun that shines,
You are the light of the moon.
You are so kind,
You are my beautiful daughter,
You are one of a kind!

50. A Father’s Poem To His Daughter
Beneath the sky’s wild coastline,
where waves of clouds
crash and froth,
You, my daughter, my light within my light
I return to your playground,
that was your youth,
where your hope sang and danced on the tips of your toes.

You frolicked in the fields that bloomed with inspiration,
unaware
shadows
lurking,
the sweet fragrance of resilience heralded the spring,
love’s sweet slurpee filled your cup.

The swing set soared like a bird in flight,
propelling you
………………..higher
……………………………higher
………………………………………….higher
to new heights of wonder,
and the slide was a slippery slope
adventure,
climbing the ladder to see what lay at the peak. How far your eyes could see.

— Francis Lee

51. I wished for a sweet daughter,
And God gave me a little angel.
My daughter, you are my life,
You are my world.
I really can’t stay a day without you,
You are my everything.
Do you have a clue?
I love you so much!

52. First Fall

I’m your guide here. In the evening-dark
morning streets, I point and name.
Look, the sycamores, their mottled,
paint-by-number bark. Look, the leaves
rusting and crisping at the edges.
I walk through Schiller Park with you
on my chest. Stars smolder well
into daylight. Look, the pond, the ducks,
the dogs paddling after their prized sticks.
Fall is when the only things you know
because I’ve named them
begin to end. Soon I’ll have another
season to offer you: frost soft
on the window and a porthole
sighed there, ice sleeving the bare
gray branches. The first time you see
something die, you won’t know it might
come back. I’m desperate for you
to love the world because I brought you here.

— Maggie Smith, poetryfoundation.org

53. My sweet little angel, I love you so,
And, I just want you to know,
That you are so special in my life.
Without you, it is hard to strive,
My daughter, my sweetheart, you are the best.
Stay blessed and happy with loving zest!

54. A Daughter Through The Eyes Of A Father
A daughter is beauty at its finest.
Heart of an angel, soul so pure, and sweet.
Daughters are one of God’s most precious gifts that he has bestowed upon the world.
Angels in Heaven do not compare to thine beauty, and grace my ever so beautiful, and lovely daughter.
Seeing you at birth brought more joy to me
than all the money in the world could ever do.
You are morning, bright, and shining,
you are noon, you reside at the highest point in my heart,
you are the dew kissed night.
You are my daughter, heart, and soul.
— Velmar Pewee Hale Johnson

55. Little Wishes
Little wishes on great big stars.
Daughter, I make wishes for you.
Keep on growing and keep on smiling.
And I’ll keep loving all that you do.

Little dreamers wishing big things.
The world is your stage to display.
You can sing and you can dance.
Enjoy all that comes your way.

Little hopes in a great big world.
Nothing can stop your free spirit.
Make some noise, play a beat.
It’s beautiful music when I hear it.

Little kisses from my now big girl,
You’re growing up so fast it seems.
Pretty soon you’ll leave the nest
And fly after all of your dreams.

Little girl I love you,
And I love you even more.
Because I made a wish once,
And you’re what I wished for.

— Cassandra Nance

56. I am so fond of you because of your innocence,
I am fond of you because you are so wise.
Don’t have much to express my girl,
As you are so complete and nice.

You make my world so bright,
With you, things are just so right.
I know that you can never do something wrong,
I know that you are so strong.

I am so lucky to have you as my daughter,
Who is so adorable to all might.
Stay as you are your chubby best,
May you succeed in your every test!

A heartfelt poem for my daughter, to show her how much I love her. A reminder of my unconditional love and support, no matter what.

58. A Head Of Curls

I remember the day
It was special in every way
My darling little girl
Born with a head of curls.

I could see the princess in you
The day you made your debut
So tiny and small
You were like a perfect doll.

We watched you grow
We were so proud we glowed.
Our precious little girl
With that head full of curls.

The years have gone too fast
We realize as we look back to the past
You have made us proud
We say this out loud.

Our daughter, our treasure
Always remember
You are a special girl
And you still have your curls!

You turned out even better
Than I often dreamed you’d be;
You’re more than I had hoped for;
You’re a sweet reward to me.

You grew up to be a mother
Full of wisdom, warmth and love,
A good and fine role model,
A blessing from above.

I couldn’t be any prouder
Than I am today of you;
You’re my daughter and my friend,
And a wonderful person, too.

She’s bright and really smart.
She’s really good at singing,
And really great at art.

So sweet and really kind.
She really is the greatest daughter,
I could ever wish to find.

62. Will You Tie My Shoes When I Grow Old?
I laugh
about that day
you first tied your shoe.
We tried and tried
to get that rabbit
in that hole
and you finally did it.
You pointed your toes
for everyone to see
how proud you were.

I am proud too,
of my writing
and my drawing,
of my needlework
and my cooking.
But my hands are beginning to ache
and my fingers will not bend.
I will lose the things
that make me proud
except for you.
Hopefully not you.
Will you let me
brag on you?
Even tell wild stories
that are a bit beyond the truth?
Will you be proud of me too?

— Rachel Kovacs, poetrysoup.com

63. My sweet and gentle daughter,
You make your father proud.
You stand for what you believe in,
And sing your song aloud.

I love you, oh so dearly,
My amazing girl!
You make your daddy teary,
When you shine out in the world.

64. My Beautiful Daughter Ella Rose
She was a miracle conceived out of sweet adoration,
I’ve always been grateful for her God-given creation.
No comparison is she to other children I know,
admiring her strength and watching her grow.

— Lu Loo, poetrysoup.com

A spectacular girl.
Whose intelligent strength,
Can take on the world.

I’m proud of my little girl
For the woman you’ve become
Always keeping in your heart
The place where you came from
But you must go live your life
To the beat of your own drum.

67. Whom should I thank?
God or my destiny?
For the gift of a lovely daughter in my life,
You are an angel to me now.
I don’t think without you,
I will be able to survive.
Thanks for coming in my life!

68. My Light
My little daughter, my shining light
Through the darkest hours
Through life’s storms
You always shine so bright.
You are my joy
You are my pride.
— Anonymous

69. Do you know my love?
What you mean to me?
I may not be able to say,
That you mean the world to me.
You are the apple of my eyes,
You are perfect and so nice.
Proud of my daughter!

70. I Dare You
I dare you to truly lean in to your dreams.
I dare you to walk that in all it means.

I dare you to hold your head high with confidence & pride.
I dare you to also find humility just on the other side.

I dare you to stand for all that is right & just.
I dare you to speak loud with conviction when you must.

I dare you to walk the road less traveled by.
I dare you to be “too much” in someone else’s eyes.

I dare you to feel both highs & lows.
I dare you to find ways to let your passions flow.

I dare you to know your worth in all that you do.
I dare you to accept that importance in you.

I dare you to be mindful & take it all in.
I dare you to be grateful in loss or in win.

I dare you to believe in what you can’t touch or see.
I dare you to shine in the light of all you can be.

I dare you to persevere especially when it’s tough.
I dare you to know in your heart you’ll always be more than enough.

A daughter is the best gift in life!

Today allows you to build dreams instead!

Making my world so bright.
Love you my dear daughter,
There is no one like you or other!

74. Happy Birthday, Daughter
Many are the joys in life.
I’m blessed with quite a few.
Still, most of all I’m grateful
To have a daughter just like you.

I remember well when you were born,
The joy that filled my heart.
When I first held you in my arms,
I loved you from the start.

It was always such a pleasure
To see your precious life unfold.
Learning new things every day
Brought happiness untold.

The child in you, I still can see.
A glimmer here and there.
The smile when you anticipate,
A tugging at your hair.

Though no one knows the future,
What each one has in store,
I know whatever happens
I couldn’t love you more.

So on this special day of yours,
Know the love that’s there for you.
Not just today, but every day,
Will last a lifetime through.

Could be a separate part.
She has my eyes and chin,
And, of course, she has my heart.

My precious little girl.

My gem, my tiny pearl.
Happy Birthday!

My little princess is now sixteen,
But in my heart always my queen! Love, Dad!

78. Our Precious Daughter
We celebrate your birthday, as you turn six today,
but we have got the gift, just the perfect gift,
that on this very special day, God gave away,
a gift of love from up above, so unique and so rare

God has specially made you to the very tip of your nose,
as precious as a flower, as tender as a rose.
Fulfilled and blessed our lives we have and all because of you,
as sweet as honey, so innocent and pure

The twinkle of your eyes is brighter than any star,
the smiles you leave behind keep our days bright,
though our laps you have outgrown, y
ou will never outgrow our hearts

I’m proud to say that my daughter is awesome.

You are my life, my entire world.
You bring me joy with all that you do.

81. Daughter Birthday Poem
Since you came into this life,
My reality has never been the same
Even after the nine months,
I could hardly believe that you’d came

Your eyes bright with this innocent light
And like a flower you continue to bloom, a star glowing as bright as the moon
And for you, my daughter, there’s nothing I wouldn’t do

Watching grow has been a dream come true
And I want you to know, that I’m the only thing you will never lose

Thinking of your smiles and giggles is what gets me through, tough days,
Never getting me to move, my heart, away from yours, for they are one

And on this special day, you are my fame, my life and my all.
Ever since you came into my life,
My reality has never been the same.

Beautiful daughter of mine!
When I look at you,
Your eyes always shine.

Your personality,
I truly admire,
Your love for life,
Is here to inspire.

It’s been another,
Absolutely wonderful year,
That I’ve been blessed,
With you, my dear.

Countless birthday wishes,
I would like to share,
With a daughter like you,
That is special and rare.

83. Another Poem On My Daughter’s Birthday
There must be soft words
for an evening like this, when the breeze
caresses like gentle fingertips
all over. I don’t know

how not to write darkly and sad.
But it’s two years today since
my little girl was born, cut safely
from the noose.

We meant nothing but hope;
how near death is to that.

Only children, only some children,
get to run free from these snags. She
was born! She lived and she grows
like joy spreading from the syllables

of songs. She reminds me of now
and now and now.
I must learn
to have been so lucky.

— Craig Morgan Teicher, poets.org

84. Another Year
I’m wishing you another year
Of laughter, joy and fun,
Surprises, love and happiness,
And when your birthday’s done,

I hope you feel deep in your heart,
As your birthdays come and go,
How very much you mean to me,
More than you can know.

— Joanna Fuchs, poemsource.com

85. So delicate and tiny is your little hand,
So adorable is the way you try to stand.
So gentle and sweet is the sound of your voice,
So is that smile of yours when you are playing with your toys.

My darling little daughter, I love you so,
You are too small to even let you know.
But I just can’t wait to watch you grow,
Because you will be the most beautiful girl, I ever know.

Happy Birthday!

86. Perfect Birthday
On your birthday
I wish you much pleasure and joy;
I hope all of your wishes come true.
May each hour and minute be filled with delight,
And your birthday be perfect for you!

You can use the poems to create thoughtful gifts like photo albums for your daughter. According to Monica Lee, a mother and a blogger, ”I created a beautiful album for my stepdaughter using the poetry in “Letter to My Daughter.” It was written by Maya Angelou or possibly Pamela Redmond Satran. I found photos from throughout my step-daughter’s life directly or vaguely related to each line and created a 30-page 12-by-12 photo book…The final result is meaningful and beautiful. And unlike anyone else’s album. Perfect for my stepdaughter (i).”
