Some weeks back, maybe a month, I was thankful for Sunshine and did an article on her.
Well, it was Sunshine’s birthday on the 24th and she’s 14! I’ve been there with her from birth and watch her grow delightfully. She’s been one of my inspirations for writing. Actually, my first journal was on her titled ‘Through Veda’s Eyes‘, by the time you get to read this journal, you will get to understand why I named her “Sunshine”.
She’s a breath of fresh air
With dark curly lovely hair
Her quest to know more is one each blessed child portrays
Understanding early commitment, she queried as we played
“Now you have worn another ring, what will Uncle Kelvin says?“
She helped, as we struggled to release my finger, Oh, the pain!
When we succeeded, “don’t do that again“ the reprimand came
From my little, sometimes mischievous but brilliant dame
She knows what she wants and how to get it from me
I would love to say no, but for this one, I’m stuck, no free!
Happy Birthday my baby
If you forget anything, always remember I yob you so much, so much!
