For My Daughter (An Acrostic)-
A glimpse of hope, seen through
Dismembering lingering thoughts of failure
And single-handedly resurrecting
Neglected and dust-covered goals.
Vivacious bundle of energy,
Incapacitating negative feelings.
Vibrant, studious, bewitching;
Intelligence so obvious
And reminiscent of your brother,
Nurturer, and, I hope, protector.
Realize, then, my daughter, my
Everything, my fourth heartbeat:
Encompassing this circuit, you complete
Some precious, beautiful mystery here.
