Hi everyone. I am currently in the process of creating a memory box for my 10 year old daughter. Without going in to the ins and outs I'm battling cancer for the second time, with not such a positive outcome this time I am looking for a verse or a short poem to go inside the lid. I am not religious. Just want it to sum up how much I love her. I'm hoping it won't be opened for a long time,but really feel the need to have it done,even thou its tearing me apart!Thank you anyone that can help. It is very much appreciated.
I'm so sorry to hear that, and hope the eventual outcome is better than it now seems. Would any of these suit?A daughterUntitledA mother's lovewww.poemhunter.com is another good place to look for poetry. If it's just an extract, then it could be there's some Donne or Masefield that would fit either.
I'm so sorry. I had a think and Carol Ann Duffy has a beautiful way of putting many things - this one, about watching a child sleep is very beautiful. http://deeperintheforest.blogspot.co.uk/2009/11/childs-sleep.htmlI volunteer as an oral historian in a hospice, recording stories and memories for people who are making memory boxes/CDs to give to their families and friends. I'd be happy to give you details - PM me if you'd like. Thinking of you.
So sorry to hear this. How about the lyrics to thesong daughterseyes by Martina McBride ?
Both again lovely Thanks ever so much
