{my Reasons Why} - Poem by Lillian Jamison

You look at me
And speak in your inquisitive tone
You want to know why

Why is the sky blue
Why is it raining today
So many questions
You want to know why

I smile at you
You smile back
At my reply
I say you are my reason why

You ask me what I mean
And I said
The reason why I smile
The happiness you bring

You smile back at me
With that sparkle in your eye
And you proudly tell me
I am your reason why

    F-amily we must care and love
    E-verlasting God we offer our prayers, hope and faith.
