A love note to my daughters


Reena, at dawn, you were born
What a great day it was that morn
Laying my eyes on you the first time
My first child, what an overwhelming feeling...
Motherhood I felt, was sublime!

Jennifer, you came after almost a day of labour
I think you wanted to be in my womb longer
You were small and so sweet
When I saw you all bundled up, from head to your tiny feet.

And Khrista, my youngest, followed eight years later
The joy again was beyond compare
Seeing your face brought me so much pleasure
You are a great addition to my other two treasures!

So many fond memories that a mom will always cherish
From infants to adults you now have become
Admittedly, though, we had some tough times and anguish
Bouts of frustration and anger, but we have overcome!
It wasn't easy at times but love kept us together.
But then, after all, doesn't love always conquer?

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
