Stepfather Poetry ~ On Your Marriage

On Your Marriage

I remember the days of childhood dreams and hopes –
Watching as a father would,
Seeing a girl grow into a woman.

I remember the days of dating and proms
Watching as a father would,
At awkward bodies and shy smiles.

I remember wondering which man would captivate you,
Watching as a father would,
As love grew and blossomed before me.

I remember your excitement at the news of your marriage
Watching as a father would,
The promise of a life all girls dream of.

Marriage Stepfather Stepdaughter Dance

Today I watch again
As a father would,
At the ultimate prom –
The vows with your betrothed,
The dance with your lover,
The eyes of a bride.

Today I watch again
As a father does,
With a full heart and soul –
With eyes that see beauty
The humility of a parent,
The eyes of pride.

~ Lorraine Brooks
