Teenage Daughter (poem by me)

You say you’re in love,
He’s wise beyond his years,
You see it end in marriage,
I see it end in tears.

You drive to a higher place of learning,
With dreamy stars in your eyes,
But my stomach is churning,
As we say our teary goodbyes.

I am here to tell you
Life is full of heartache
You are here to remind me
It’s worth it for your sake.

“May our sons in their youth be like plants full grown, our daughters like corner pillars
cut for the structure of a palace…” –Psalm 144:12
