Quintessence – An Ode to My Daughter

It was only yesterday you appeared to me
But you were the essence of quintessence
A dainty cherub, with a sparkle in your eyes
Filled my own with rivers of tears

As you grow, your beauty amazes
Your passion and warmth and laughter engages
That infectious persona touches those who you cross
Which will be etched for many many years

Your future will glow as bright as the sun
Brilliance will forever radiate
Dream large. Embrace all you can.
Do live, don’t just exist.
Don’t just touch the surface, feel the moment.
Hear well, but listen better.
And don’t just see. Observe with passion.

Mark today as another beginning
There are many chapters to write in the days to come
Which you will author in your own fashion
And know my love shall forever bound
