43 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

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.

3. 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.

Just know, my sweet daughter,
I always love you.

4. 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.

5. You laugh with me,
When I am hearty and happy.
My dear yYou 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!

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!

7. 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.

8. 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.
