'Eva' (Beloved Granddaughter) - Poem by Ray Lucero

Born on the morning of July twenty-fifth of 2003,
Christened 'Eva Laureen' 'n the world would see;

That her purpose was great as she'd soon embark,
To achieve great wonders, by leaving her mark,

On a world so dangerous, chaotic 'n stressed,
Using God-given powers, anointed 'n blessed,

Parents ‘n family pledging support 'n their love,
As God smiled down from His throne high above,


Endowed with charisma 'n beauty to spare,
Bluest of blue eyes 'n soft golden hair,

With a turn of a finger or a smile on her face,
People scurry about at a blistering pace,

Performing herculean tasks at her regal command,
With a nod of her head or the wave of her hand,

A natural leader, destined to balance the scales,
She knows not to rest, till justice prevails,

Restoring peace where turmoil once ruled this land,
By causing those plotting evil to give up 'n disband,

Eva dear Eva there’s so much you shall do,
As your knowledge 'n wisdom begin to accrue,

We'll prepare you well for a time just ahead,
The future applauds loudly 'n of you shall be said,

“Eva governed with compassion 'n love to be sure,
From a calm place within her, assured 'n demure.”
