    Such an accomplished human being, who happens to be so loving and down to earth, a wonderful mother, wife, poetess and friend. She truly is a gift to this world and to any site she happens to share her poems in. May you always be blessed as you are a true blessing to those of us who know you. God be with you always.

    For justifying the title of honour given to Mrs. Sylvia I like to narrate the words. Wonder reflects the amazement and admiration with beautiful and remarkable works. So, we feel that she is wonder. Jasmin means a girl or lady who is generous beautiful from inside and outside, honest and truthful with values and positive attitudes. Jasmine is an ornamental and fragrant white or pink or yellow flower. She greatly sprinkles true poetic fragrance to the world and blooms in the garden of God.

    Sylvia Frances Chan - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

    Serenity she has with success of traveling the world,
    Yearns she before God for eternal and divine bliss,
    Love she has for God and for all creatures'
    Vastness of knowledge she has in service of mankind,
    Intelligence blossoms in her mind with morality,
    Attentive very she is towards her attitudes.

  • Kumarmani Mahakul Kumarmani Mahakul (9/12/2018 10:50:00 PM)

    Fragrance of poems she spreads and readers review,
    Reverence she has, fellow poets frequently tell,
    Affectionate she is as mother, she cares her children,
    Noble lady she is evangelist of high standard,
    Compassionate heart of her beats in divine service,
    Educationally she is strong well known Dutch poetess,
    Souvenir of gratitude she is bearing philosophy.

  • Kumarmani Mahakul Kumarmani Mahakul (9/12/2018 10:49:00 PM)

    Challenges she accepts being courageous in mind,
    Happiness she holds in hands having God's grace,
    Ambitious poetess she is, she reviews poems of others,
    Navigation of words she knows. Kumarmani Mahakul thanks.

    Mind-blowing! It is next to impossible for me or anybody to think that a person could be so many things simultaneously and could achieve so much in a single life-span. Ms Sylvia is a versatile person par excellence.
    It is always a pleasure to read her poems. Thanks.

Best Poem of Sylvia Frances Chan

Grow Old With You?

Grow old with you?
Come on, sit down on my knees
I'll tell you about the butterflies and the bees
Now I am still young forever
Grow old with you? That never!

Don't pick off my very youth
seek among the olds your truth
Come on old man, sit next to me, don't go to the south
sit next to me, not on my knees, I'll kiss you on the mouth

Don't tell that you're my lover
Don't tell that I am your friend
Don't tell that you're a glover
because what we are doing is a trend

Grow old with you? That never!
Don't pick off my very youth ever
love ...
