55 Beautiful Poems For Daughters

1. When my daughter walks into a room,
All you can do is smile.
Her happy little face can take away any gloom,
Her chubby little cheeks,
And her big bright eyes,
Always seem to take away my sorrows and sighs.

She loves to play outside.
In the sun or the rain,
She never worries about the weather,
Or if she falls and is in pain.
She loves her cartoons,
And to listen and dance to music,
She loves it at night to sit and stare at the moon.

My daughter is always on the go.
She never wants to rest,
Which is easy to see why,
Her room is always a mess.
She loves her grandma most,
Sometimes I think more than she loves her toast.

2. Daddy’s little girl,
Small but hard-headed,
Just like him!
She would try anything he’s done to be like him.
He would bring her outside and show her the trees and birds.
What life is outside the house.

As she grew, she often wondered,
Why he did what he did,
As far as showing her what nature was.
But as life went on, she understood,
That life is too short, you have to learn each step.

3. I look at my child as she looks at me,
And into her eyes, I look and I see,
The innocence that fills her unspoiled soul.
These moments I wish I could treasure and hold.

But my baby is growing, and influences are strong.
I hope she remembers the right from the wrong.
I’ve tried hard to instill these virtues inside,
But regardless, she still fills me with happiness and pride.

4. If you could see what I see when I look at you,
You’d definitely love you, too.
You would hold your head up high,
For you possess a beauty that no one can deny.

If you could see what I see when I look at you,
There’s no way you’d be so down and blue.
You wouldn’t be able to contain your smiles,
For your charm goes on for miles and miles.

Please try to see what I see when I look at you.
You will feel refreshed and new.
All the anger, shame, and insecurities will just go.
I promise, my dear girl, you are too good to ever hang your head low.

5. You’re my daughter,
And I’d just like to say,
You bring me joy,
Each and every day.

Whenever I think,
Or look at you,
I know I’m blessed,
That’s wonderfully true.

You’re always determined,
To achieve what’s on your mind,
Thinking of others,
Your actions are kind.

I shall admit,
We’re a wonderful team,
To have a daughter like you,
Was my ultimate dream.

6. 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.

7. 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.

8. My daughter is my everything,
She means the world to me.
She’s like a little flower,
And busy as a little bee.

9. 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.

10. My daughter is very special,
Kind and very true.
If you’ve ever met her,
I’m sure you’d think so, too.

She has the smile,
That lights up her face.
It doesn’t matter where she goes,
She’s liked in every place.

I’m proud to have her as my daughter,
Prouder than anyone could ever know,
I’ve written her this poem,
Just to tell her I love her so!

11. 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!

12. 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!

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. 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.

Birthday Poems For My Daughter

It is a joyful feeling to see your daughter grow up in front of your eyes. Wish her happy birthday with any of the poems given below. You may add a poem to a birthday card or frame one and present it as a gift.

49. For the first time, I saw your face,
And in my heart, you filled that space.

I closed my eyes, and you were one,
And my love for you had grown brighter than the sun.

My heart skipped a beat when you turned two.
You were getting so big! What was I to do?

On the day that you turned three,
I gave you a baby brother to share with me.

It seemed like in no time you were four,
And when you looked at me with love, my heart would soar.

All too quickly, you turned five.
You would soon start school and leave me behind.

While gaining your independence, you turned six,
But there are still things you need me to fix.

It was not easy watching you turn seven.
You are a gift from God, sent straight from Heaven.

I shed a tear as you turned eight,
And thanked the Lord for making you my fate.

Another year gone, and now you’re nine.
It’s going too fast. I wish I could turn back time.

Time keeps moving, and you grow into ten.
If only we could go back to one again.

God smiles upon you as you turn eleven.
He is saving you a place up in Heaven.

Twelve comes so quickly, and you go to middle school.
Your world is so different, and now I’m not so cool.

You welcome thirteen, but my little girl I will miss.
It was in this year that you got your first kiss.

I hold my breath as you turn fourteen,
A more beautiful young lady I have never seen.

Fifteen comes and takes fourteen away,
“Please keep her safe,” to God I pray.

At sixteen, you can finally drive,
I wish it were still your Barbie Jeep from when you were just five.

Turning seventeen, there’s not much time,
The mountain of your youth you’ve almost climbed.

Eighteen comes in the blink of an eye,
And as you close this chapter, I’ll try my best not to cry.

I’ve loved you forever, or so it seems.
I first met you when I was young, in my dreams.

You are everything I ever hoped for and more.
I’m excited to see what God has in store.

50. I never thought a part of me,
Could be a separate part.
She has my eyes and chin,
And, of course, she has my heart.
I’m talking about my daughter,
My precious little girl.
She’s my little princess,
My gem, my tiny pearl.
Happy Birthday!

51. My dearest daughter, my favorite person,
You make this life all so worth it.
I love your smile and the way you are,
I’ve watched you grow, and you’ve come so far.
I’m proud of you and all that you’ve done,
Now let’s celebrate, and have some fun.

52. Here’s to you, my little lady,
Dressed in grey, and black, and navy.
Hair that’s bouncy and so wavy,
It’s your birthday, let’s get crazy!
I’ve watched you grow and watched you blossom,
I’m proud to say that my daughter is awesome.

53. Happy birthday to my favorite girl,
You are my life, my entire world.
You bring me joy with all that you do.
You make my day, and I love you.
So happy birthday, let’s have some cake,
It’s your day to enjoy, it is what you make!

54. Happy birthday,
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.

55. 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.
