Stepfather Poetry ~ To My Stepdaughter On Your Wedding Day

To My Stepdaughter

On Your

Wedding Day


My Stepdaughter

Today, the beautiful bride

My heart is filled with love and pride

I wish the best of everything for you

As you walk today, right by my side


That little girl

Yesterday, gentle and shy

With questioning eyes, wondering why

And who on earth, was this strange man

Who tried to be a funny guy


This humble man

Then, newly in love

With a wonderful lady with a little dove

A little girl, so perfect and small

Who I needed to treat with the softest kid glove


My Wedding Day

All day long, I smiled

I had a new wife and a beautiful child

What more could I ask for, I did not know

From then evermore, I was truly beguiled


Our family life

Years passing, a learning curve

But a life of happiness to observe

Ebbs and flows, many lessons learned

But the rewards we reaped were well deserved


Your Wedding Day

This day, of joy and celebration

We are both so very proud, and filled with admiration

For all achieved together, and all you have become

My Stepdaughter

May your new life fulfill every aspiration
