I realize with a title like that you will be expecting some high prose or poetry. Not one to disappoint, I will now wow you with my mad poetry skills which won me a publication in the National Library of Poetry. Yes, National Library.
An Ode to a Daughter, by Janine Wegner, poet emeritus Wegnerus
Megan, dearest Megan.
Today you turn eighteen
and while your birth was no dream,
you have become a daughter worthy of your own meme.
How can I express my love for you?
By sharing the many things that make you, you.
The fact that you are lovely to look at is obvious for everyone to see
You are very passionate about everything you do
It makes me so proud and amazed how you have become “you”
You were adorable and fun and everything I would want a daughter to be
But now you are getting ready to fly the coop
I have more to write and so much to share
but for now I will just say that I love that you are dingy, clumsy, cranky and have special ways that you show you care.
It is going to be strange to have you leave our home
but I know that God is with you wherever you may roam
So enjoy your last months here
