The Steamy Desert
Searching along lifeís roads I finally found you.
Like a gift, I opened my eyes to see yours
So bright and blue, filled with wonder and awe.
I wrapped you inside the shell of my heart
And with your guidance, learned how to love.
I found what it is to give and expect nothing,
How to relish in the joy of anotherís happiness.
At times I have learned how much joy you get from the heartbreak of letting go.
I was taught through you the simple joys of life
Songs in the rain
Snowball fights in the bitter cold
Drinking warm cocoa with marshmallows on top.
You loved me when I first awoke in the morning
No make up or fancy clothes.
Often you were the first to kiss me hello.
Your smiles chased away any sadness in my heart.
I watch you sleep at night for the simple joy
Of hearing you breathing.
Before I met you I was a shallow person who thought only of herself.
You have shown me that I was never complete until the day you came my way.
You are simply the most wonderful gift in this life, or any other.
You are my daughter.
For sometimes when the Darkness falls, we must surrender, take what is ours, and give what we can, and always remember love is somewhere waiting...
