Dreams for You (poem for class)

Dreams for You

My dreams for a daughter
Differ from those for a son.

You, my beautiful, independent footstomper,
I dream for you dreams so different from my own:

A love for Jesus Christ that grows every day.
A yearning to study The Word,
to hide It in your heart.
Real friends and real loves
with real fights and real fun.
A path that winds but is not rough
and difficult choices well made.
A life that was well lived.

These, my darling girl, are my dreams for you.
