The heart of a father is the masterpiece of nature. ― Antoine François Prévost

Before I was born you laid a foundation for me

After I was born you cared for me

Once I was grown you counseled me


In your eyes

…I saw my potential

In your expectations

…I found my aspirations

In your arms

…I learned my self-worth

In your discipline

…I learned dignity

In your example

…I learned fortitude and valor


I am a woman

I am a wife

I am a content person with a voice

Because I was born your daughter


Thank you for listening

Thank you for being devoted

Thank you for walking behind, alongside and out in front

Whatever was needed to keep me on the path.
