My daughter I'll mother

No manual
No guide
Nowhere to go hide

No training
No mentor
Never done this before

Love
Devotion
And other emotions

Overwhelming
All encompassing
More than anything

My daughter
I'll mother
Today and forever

Xxxxxxxx

I'm not sure this is quite right, but it's a good first draft and it says what I want to get across.  Linked up at Poets United.

It was quite right and quite sweet.

What a wonderful poem!

And on her shirt? How could it not be right? How many words do you need to embroider the truth?

smiles...cute little one...and there is no manual...we figure it out as we go along..but as long as we do it with love...i think we are on the right track...

You have a lovely and lucky daughter - you dont need a manual - love is all it takes, lots of it, and you have that for sure!
