To a Daughter…

Every once in a while
you’ll wonder why
but don’t worry
some whys’
never have answers
the sun shines
and so will you.
Every once in a while
you’ll be given answers
some believable
and some not so
listen and let go
there will be a time
to know the facts.
Every once in a while
a memory will flash
and you’ll look around
and find nothing
of the childhood
you left behind
but don’t worry
there is enough stored
to remind you someday
that fun and laughter
were also a reality
of the now forgotten time.
Every once in a while
when situations arise
as to what is right
and what is not,
you’ll find the answers
just look deep within,
there was a reason
for all those lectures
think back –
and the lessons
will come to you.
Every once in a while
as you walk along,
your world will seem
a little different
from the one
that surrounds you,
don’t bother –
rarely are things
as they appear to be.
Every once in a while
you’ll go with the flow
that nudges you along,
it’s alright –
you need to first
grow your fins,
before you start to swim,
but remember that-
when you are out in the world
and on your own
trust only your eyes
and stand firm your ground
what doesn’t seem right
is probably not
peer pressure is real
you’ll just need to be stronger.
Every once in a while
you’ll wish for
what you miss
and yet you won’t know
what it really is
spend some time
with the moon, and the stars
for someday they will
help you find it.
Every once in a while
when the voices around
tell you what
and who you are
you will rebel inside
for their definition of you
may not be the one
that you and I
know to be You.
Every once in a while
when that happens
just close your eyes
and look deep within.
And every time
that once in a while
you’ll find yourself
your strength
your courage
and the wisdom
that you need.
For every once in a while
that you so find yourself
you will smile
and so will I
For every time
somewhere in that smile
there will always be
a part of me as well.
