A MOTHER'S JEWEL:

I  wrote this many years ago to my estranged daughter,
I meant what I write here then as I still do today:
She is a July born although not until later this month. 
A MOTHER'S JEWEL:
You are the pearl within the oyster,
The stars that shine by night.
You have shared with me some dark days,
You have helped me through my plight.

To me you're a jewel that's priceless.
One with a heart of gold.
You have warmed the very soul of me.
When my feelings were so cold.

Thank you my dear daughter,
You're a treasure beyond compare.
Should you need me anytime,
It goes without saying I'll be there.

My burden you have lightened.
You're a special kind of girl.
As I have already mentioned.
You're my jewel, you're my pearl.
