A precious little flower
that is in constant bloom
I watch as yet another milestone
around the corner looms.
I received a special gift.
A blessing from above
God sent me a small wonder
Wrapped with love in a glove.
Her eye’s are like diamonds that would twinkle,
Glittering the smiles with tender sprinkle
No mother can forget her baby’s first smile
Which brought me the freedom from a long pain’s exile.
Her rosy red cheeks,
Just as big as they could be
As I held her in my arms
And watched her drift to sleep
It seems like only yesterday
that we shared a breath
but now it seems like tomorrow
you will leave and I’ll be left.
The tiny little angel is my Rushi
that always is in flight
came in my life with bolshy and flashy
you brought me so much light.
Your beauty is so stunning
your smile makes me melt
I’m so proud to be your mommy
it’s the best I’ve ever felt.
Oh perfect little princess
with you I’m so in love
every night before I dream
I thank the lord above.
How did I get so lucky
to have as sweet of a gift as you
If ever you should need me
there’s nothing I wouldn’t do.
I wake up early in the morning and have some tea
Then I go to the bathroom to wash up and pea
I need to go to work as early as nine
Then out of the office late at night.
I only work five days a week
But sure thing it made me weak
I’m tired of the things I do at work
I’m tired and had no choice but work.
I have to work to earn some money
But I can’t save even just a penny
For I have to pay for water and electric bills
And also for school and home bills.
I’m tired of the things that I always do
I’m tired of all the hardships and pain in life
I’m tired for working in able to survive
I’m tired, yes I am, but I will never be tired of YOU…
My father gets quite mad at me;
my mother gets upset—
when they catch me watching
our television set.
My father yells, “Turn that thing off!”
Mom says, “It’s time to study.”
I’d rather watch my favorite TV show
with my best buddy.
I sneak down after homework
and turn the set on low.
But when she sees me watching it,
my mother yells out, “No!”
Joy, happiness and so blessed by God is how I felt
On the day you were born, my sweet little angel.
Hearing your laughs makes my world filled with laughter, too.
Never would I want to hear you cry for sorrow but for joy.
Every time that you smile, I smile more.
And when you cry, it breaks my heart and cries more.
Hugs and kisses of you is what I always crave for.
Having you as my daughter is such a God’s gift I treasure.
And my life won’t have a dull moment with you that’s for sure.
Never will I let any harm comes your way,
My sweet little angel, oh you know how you’re so dear to me.
I promise I’ll be a good mother for you as the best that I can be…
JOHNEAH HANMI, you will always be my sweet little angel and the best gift God has given me….
