Daughters

Dusted with sugar and fairy flakes
Little pink footprints sunk in my heart
Free to be truthful to their souls
Kindness to the depths of mine
Important factors in the life I lead
Watching, absorbing and learning
I am their example, their safe place
They are my lessons, my sunshine
Sometimes cotton wool or cotton candy
Sometimes steel scouring pads
They wrap me in love
Or scratch my tender surfaces
No matter
Because they will always
Nourish my soul
At the end of it all
