Breath of Fresh Air

A daughter poem that speaks to the healing power of a daughter when life becomes unbearable, and hope begins to dwindle.

My daughter is a breath of fresh air
When smoggy days find me,

My daughter is a deep breath
When my lungs constrict,

My daughter is oxygen
Carrying life in and out my heart,

My daughter is a cure
Healing me with her voice
Charismatic demeanor
and infectious smile,

My daughter is
Patience when
Frazzled emotions
Fill my soul,

My daughter is
Who I never thought I would be,
She is
The best part of me.
