Daughter Mine


Daughter mine, don’t be afraid.

The night is dark, I know,

But the blackest night will never melt

The whiteness of the snow.


Daughter mine, avoid the dog

That lurks along your way.

Lie with dogs, awake with fleas—

You, too, may end a stray.


Daughter mine, look up, ahead—

The clouds may mask the sun,

But his bright face is shining still;

His day is never done.


Daughter mine, the door is closed

That holds back all your doubt.

The door of hope is opened wide—

Run towards it, daughter—shout!


Daughter mine, remember this

As you face grey unknown:

That I am ever with you.

Daughter mine, you’re not alone. 


Ramble back at me...
