Daughters
The first born with the Scottish genes.
The flaming red hair and beatiuful green eyes.
My shrewd, quick-witted confidant
Who can sell an iceberg to a camel driver. 
  
My middle child, the wonderful artist and mother;
Her maternal grandmother's Irish blood within.
The auburn haired independent flower child
who steps to the beat of her own drum. 
   
And the youngest, the raven haired, dark eyed beauty;
My loyal, sweet , sensitive "baby"
of whom my father said when he first held her:
"This is how I live."
 
 
And for these,
my daughters
the following verse;
   
Across the fields of yesterday
They sometimes come to me...
Little children back from play
Tired, hungry... a haunting memory.
And when they gather all around
I hope that they can see
A decent man strong and sound...
The man I tried to be.

Not all heroes have superpowers; some of them come in quiet gentle men who wipe your tears, kiss your hurts, and teach you how to catch a fish for the first time.

Some heroes go unlauded, never letting the big world know how large and all-powerful they are in the small world, the world where little girls laugh at Daddy's in funny hats, can't sleep until the monsters in the closet are chased away and always get the big side of the wishbone so their dreams will come true.

 

So much of who you were, Daddy, is what gives us the courage to be who we are, each very different but still blended together as sisters, knowing you were our center, our safe harbor.

You seldom fixed our problems, forcing us to make decisions for ourselves and live with the consequences, making us strong and independent, but knowing that regardless of those choices, we would still be loved, respected and encouraged.

 

You were not just a man to me. You were my friend and confidant, confessor and teacher, partner in capers and much laughter, and always my hero.

I miss you already.
