For you, My Daughter

For you my daughter, I pray

That you may 

-See better

Than I did

-Smell clearer

The scent of truer love 

Than I could 

-Hold higher

Your head and shoulders

Than I ever held mine

-Speak louder 

About things I bottled inside

-Run faster

To the finish line 

And the places I shrunk in fear from

I pray, that you my daughter

Will always, ALL ways- 

Raise dust in victory!
