You are the daughter of my soul
you didn't grow in my womb...
lying softly against the beating of my heart

you never took nourishment at my breast
I never knew your childhood fantasies
or teenage whims

in my youth...I prayed for a daughter
a daughter who would play with dolls
and give tea parties

a daughter who would grow into a friend
a friend...I could talk to
about makeup and clothes
and stars...and rainbows

instead...I was blessed with beautiful sons
sons who talked of baseball and cars
sons who caught fireflies in jars

one of those beautiful sons married you

and...if I could design for myself...a daughter
if I were to have her made
just to order

if I were to steal from the skies
the stars for her eyes
if I were to specify her size

I could have designed for myself...
no daughter...more perfect than you

you are the daughter of my soul

Welcome, I have someone special in my life that I feel this way about also.  
I loved reading this.

Just got your e-mail, Hi Lyra!  I didn't know this was you!!  I'm so glad you are here!

Lyra darling girl ohhhhhhhhh how glad I am to see you here.   Do you think the rest will know I'm bussing my friends in? Maybe, oh well what the heck I'll shout it from the rooftops, Your attention everyone, these are my friends. This is Lyra who really writes some of the best poetry in the whole of Moontown and now Passions. You'll have the other poets gnashing their teeth in jealousy and frustration darling girl.  
Welcome to Passions
    
Love and warm stuff
As always
Mushy
You will love it here
thank you for coming  

Oh! and I made the writing bigger because I know you like it that way

I love the name too. It suits you

Lyra,
Beautiful poem. I had a tough time getting it to rhyme though.   You will have to explain that username to me.

Dear Lyra,
Hi! I'm here, too. I like the whimsy at this site, don't you? Loved your poem. I remembered it from before, and was glad to read it again. It's lovely. I don't have any of these wonderful creatures in my life yet, I guess I'd better nudge my boys to get busy.

Thank you so much for the warm welcom, Enchantress....How did you get that beautiful banner with the daisies on there?
I am still trying to figure out the graphics on this site....but eventually I will learn them.

Thanks for the GREAT BIG WELCOME, Marsha!
I sent an email to everyone at MTC whose address I had, telling them about this site...
Martin gave me some more addresses...so I sent it to lots of people....so, we will probably have lots of company.
How do you change the sizes on the fonts?
I haven't been able to figure that one out yet?

Thank you so much for telling me about this site, dear Juanita....I really love it here...
and I have figured most of it out.
I think we will probably have more friends from MTC come over here soon too!
