Your The Apple Of My Eye - Poem by Kaila George

Mum why is there war?
Because men believe in what they say
So they fight for what is right

Mum why does the rain fall?
Because people believe
They are the tears of God
Each time a baby dies

Mum why does the sun shine?
Because it warms the earth
To make new life each and every day

Mum why is the sky blue?
Because they believe
God painted it that way

Mum why are their stars?
Because people believe
It's a birth of a newborn child

Mum why do you cry?
Because I am so happy
God gave you in my life

I love you mum
I love you son
You're the apple of my eye
