To My Daughter-In-Law
Sometimes within a house of men
your feelings stay inside.
They are not comfortable at times
with sharing. So you bide
your time until you're with a friend
who knows each pain and scar,
who doesn't hold it all inside,
who knows just who you are.
And then one day somebody new
seeks to join this clan.
Another woman, and maybe one
who'll trust and care and plan.
Oh wouldn't it be wonderful
if fate with you would send
someone who'd like to share and feel,
someone to be a friend.
