You who love all little things
A humming bird with shiny wings
A violet, a blade of grass
Whispering when at dusk You pass
You who love each little note
Lilting from a young bird's throat
Who put into the sky at night
Tiny bits of golden light
Called stars, and in the sky by day
Wisps of clouds; to You I pray
Watch over her! I would not dare
Call your attention to this small prayer
But oh, she is so very small
You might not notice her at all!
I wrote this poem when my daughter was a little girl ... she just recently got married ...


  1. Dear MArgie,
    So beautiful and moving... Life flies> she is already old enough to get married! How do you feel about that?

  2. Margie,
    Aww! What a sweet poem this is.
    Thanks for sharing this special poem.
    Talk to you soon.

  3. HI MARGIE -

    Oh my how lovely. And to think that now your baby girl is married - and to think she was already so loved - so loving - so adored - that her sense of self is whole and pure because, in great part, of YOU!!
    Love to you

  4. ...the lightness of "yesterday" midst the lightness of "today" beautiful that is.


  5. It is nice to know that you have been writing poems so many years. You have a gift and I for one appreciate that you share your gift in you blog. Congratulations to your daughter and her new husband!

  6. As I read the poem, not only did I fully enjoy its creation, but I felt a joyous and protective love. When reaching the last lines of the poem, seeing when it was written, and the current married daughter - there came an instant smile and a touched heart. Thank you for its sweet sentiment.

  7. I love this. My daughter is three and to see the world as she sees it is such a gift. This poem captures everything about her that I wish I could hold on to forever. Wonderful!!!

  8. Dear Margie, how moving, sweet and loving. Now she is married already! She will be as great a mother as her own!
