Padraig - Poem by Hazel Durham

Your days are spun with a golden thread and lots of fun,
You have an engaging smile like the natural warmth of the sun,
The light of your constant energy with your active mind so bright
In the darkness you shine like a lone spotlight,

You love playing with your games like Fifa 15 a challenge never too far,
Your soccer skills are a gift like Ronaldo your favourite star,
You have the will to win,
Your constant joy is like a whirling top in an eternal spin,

Candy floss colours is like your charm so warm,
Insightful ocean blue eyes with your Celtic red hair,
You always show how much you care
For your mum and dad are your heroes so fair,

Their love for you is like no other,
You teach us all to cherish every moment that takes us a step further,
To love with zest like opening a brand new treasure chest
And discover your lovely nature in the comfort of your family nest,

You are the like the sunlight of every day
Padraig you shine with love and joy
In your own special way.

    You have given Padraig.... the young boy a lovely tribute! I am sure, he will be so delighted to see a beautiful poem written about him, even if he may not be able to understand the poem now word by word! As he grows up, I am sure he is going to treasure it like a valuable gift and remember you with great warmth! (Report) Reply

    This poem, Hazel, is a moving tribute to young Padraig. He is obviously a fine child, a child to make any parent proud. This poem is also, indirectly, a moving tribute to you, Hazel. It speaks volumes of the warm, welcoming, person you really are. May this relationship blossom and prosper. Well done Hazel. (Report) Reply

    A lovely tribute to a great Scottish player. A nice poem on a national hero of Ireland. although I am not much interested in football even then I have read his name, it shows he is really great. (Report) Reply
