The mom in me swells with pride when I read this poem composed by my 8 year old daughter… makes me feel blessed.. along the journey of parenthood, where I must have made multiple mistakes, I guess I did something right…
But when did my lil darling, my first born, the apple of my eye, grow up so much? Don’t grow up so fast, my bacha… I miss you being my baby…
Here is her composition…
Love is good for you! It warms your heart,
Yes, love gets you to a great start.
You’ll find yourself smiling, if love you learn;
Happiness, joy and contentment you’ll earn.
Love yourself above all,
Rich or poor’s not important at all.
Inside your heart, you’ll find life’s true measure;
You’ll discover love is your greatest treasure.
If you love the world and those around you,
You’ll find that friends surround too!
Give them your trust,
Respect their feelings,
You’ll see love can do all kinds of healings.
Even a small insect should be respected,
All’s worth love nothing to be neglected.
Love is good for you!
