poem for Naylah on her 7th birthday

Happy 7th Birthday Naylah

We picked strawberries

And waited for you,

 

Mommy, so heavy,

So ready for you,

 

But you were late!

(just a little bit)

 

Baba wondered,

Would he have another son?

Or a BEAUTIFUL daughter

JUST – LIKE –YOU!

 

We rushed to the Birthing Center

Where you were born,

Grandma played with Zakiah

In the waiting room,

 

And then – there you were!

Out of Mommy you came!

 

Someone said, “It’s a girl!”

And Mommy cried

HAPPY TEARS of JOY

For Naylah

Chemutai

Justina

Was here,

And life was never the same.
