Poem- a Gift to My Dear Daughter on Her Milestone Birthday

It is difficult to put into words the actual feelings we have for our children and the hope and aspirations we have towards them. But we try

Birthday Gift

I was wondering what I could gift my daughter on her milestone birthday. I wanted to gift her something that would make her remember me with love and pride for a long time. Wishes and greetings cards are expected and common. I wanted to do something different. So, I thought of publishing a poem for her on HubPages along with a short account of our life together.

Daughters are a blessing

They say daughters are a blessing. This has proved more than true for me. Both my daughters are wonderful. They have grown up with good values and are good human beings. Their accomplishments achieved through integrity and hard work have made us proud. We love them unconditionally. They gave our life purpose and joy and mean the world to us. They care for us deeply and are our best friends forever. I am grateful for every moment spent with them. Their childhood days are the most precious, when we had so much fun together.

What it Means to be a Mom

Motherhood is beautiful though challenging. I experienced pure joy when my daughters were born. It does not matter whether your child is a boy or a girl, because a child is a person in his or her own right, an individual worthy of our love, and being a part of me is special to me. I believe it is a blessing of the best kind to have these two children. The joy of nurturing and caring for my children has been an incomparable experience for me.

Reliving Precious moments

On this milestone birthday, I reminisce on all the days we spent together. I recall the time when our daughter was born. Words cannot express the joy I felt when I held the tiny bundle in my arms. And as I watched her grow, with every milestone she achieved, it felt wonderful. The first step she took, the first word she spoke, as we cheered her on was all so exciting. It felt magical. Now as I reflect on those times and relive those precious moments, I feel fortunate.

Sibling Love

Being a working mom, I was not able to give much attention and time to my children. Nevertheless, the time we spent together was fun and memorable. The best part was that the little one had a big sister to look after her when I was not around. And to this day I am grateful to my elder daughter for taking such good care of her sister during her early childhood. And my younger daughter on her part loves her sister just like her own mother. And now her little niece in turn loves her like her own mother.

Graduation Day

The day she graduated with her Master’s in Dental surgery was a memorable day for us. All the hard work, the years of toil, days and nights studying hard for the exams, the tensions during the exams, working for the dissertations, the thesis, the seminars, had led to fruition. Hurray she is a doctor now. My dream had come true. How the years just roll by? Our little princess had grown into an independent strong woman.

The Arrival of Prince Charming

And then she found her prince charming. As she had charted her career path, we though it was time for her to find her life partner. It was the happiest day for us when she told us that she had found her Mr.Right. We had already met him, knew he is a wonderful person, a brilliant maxillofacial surgeon. They are in the same profession and have lots of things in common. They studied in the same college and that is where they met. Theirs was a fairy tale love story and will make a topic for another hub. They are happily married now.

Thoughtful and kind

Talented and Funny

And all things nice

Our angel our princess

I am proud to be your mom.


Blessed with a beautiful soul

And a brilliant beautiful mind

You have grown into an a

Remarkable smart woman.


You are amazing and inspiring

And I hope you never change.

The day you were born was the

Happiest day in my life.

Milestone with enthusiasm and joy.

The first step you took,

The first word you spoke,

As we cheered you on

Are still so vivid in my mind.

How quickly the years pass

As you reach another milestone

A beautiful phase of life

To give wings to your dreams.

Fly high, aim for the stars

You are meant for greater things.

On this day, your birthday

I pray that every step you take

Takes you closer to your goals.

Enjoy your special day

Keep smiling and remember

You mean a lot to us and

To pursue your dreams

With courage and dedication

When we needed you the most

We are grateful to the Lord

For giving us a daughter like you

Who loves us and cares for us

And make us proud in every way.

Thank you Manatita. I feel the same. She is gifted or else how can someone so young be so spiritually inclined. It's the previous good deeds for sure. We are blessed. Jai Sri Krishna, Jai Sri Ram.

manatita44 from london on April 13, 2021:

With the Gita, she cannot go wrong. More importantly, she sounds very blessed. That is a gift from Sri Krishna which she must have inherited in her previous incarnations. I feel much pride in your pride, meaning that I'm also very happy for the family. Om Shanti! Jai Sri Krishna! Jai Ram!

Thanks Manatita for the visit and the lovely comments. You are so right, daughters are gems. She's not just virtuous but warm hearted which many a times her patients have mentioned. She's a beautiful soul. So is her husband. They surely deserve all the blessings. I especially miss the Bhagavad Gita lessons I used to have with her, after she got married and moved out.. Along with her academic achievements, her spiritual knowledge is amazing and I learn a lot from her with regard to this. Have a great day and stay safe friend.

Thanks Lorna for the visit and lovely comments. Yes I wanted to gift her something that she would value and remember for a long time. So I came up with this poem conveying my true feelings for her. And I enjoyed the flash back, searching her childhood pics and reminiscing our days together. Now that she is married and away, I miss her so much. But that's life I guess. All I want is for her to be happy always. Have a great day and stay safe my friend.

Ann Carr from SW England on April 12, 2021:

What a lovely idea to do this as a special gift, Vidya! I can see how proud of her you are and she is a beautiful and talented young woman.

I too have two daughters so I can identify with the way you feel. Both totally different and both precious!

Your poem says it all.

Thank you for the visit and nice comments Ravi Rajan. Yes Ravi, children grow up so fast. Time seems to fly. Make the most of the time you can with your children because before you know it they will be all grown up and independent. Which is good actually. It's a joy for us too, to see them well settled in life, at the same time we start missing them. Take care, stay safe.

Ravi Rajan from Mumbai on April 12, 2021:

Wonderfully written Vidya. The life of your daughter as she grows from a tiny tot into a smart independent woman reminds me so much of the growing ages of my own daughters. This poem is a perfect gift to her and I am sure she is going to like it.

VIDYA D SAGAR (author) on April 11, 2021:

Thanks Brenda for the nice comments. Yes I thought it would be a unique idea to gift her a poem as she is an avid follower of my blog. She really worked very hard, like literally day and night to accomplish what she has wanted. I have seen her struggle but never give up and admire her grit. I have conveyed your wishes to her and she thanks you a lot. Have a good day and stay safe.

VIDYA D SAGAR (author) on April 11, 2021:

Thanks Peggy for the nice comments. I am truly fortunate to have a daughter as accomplished as her. She believes the vice-versa. Made me believe the phrase 'daughters are a blessing'. Have a nice day, stay safe.
