My Three Girls


My three girls are the greatest loves of my life
The oldest is amber with eyes that match my own
The middle one is gothic dark with eyes to match her dad's
And the baby is fair and dark with eyes a mix of both

The first two girls are close indeed
At eighteen months a part
Born while I was still a child
We all grew up together

But the baby is a different breed
Coming from the second marriage
Quiet and shy, clever and smart
She has grown the closest of the three

I never thought I could share my love
In equal circles of three
But I'm living proof it can be done
These girls I cherish so.
