With a lusty wail, you came into this world

That moment onwards, you became my world

Your endearing smile, slightly tilted head

Those impishly twinkling eyes left everything unsaid

You fought circumstances, even in your innocence

Your little brain packed in a lot of common sense.

Your laughter gave me a lease of life

Your love eased all pain and strife

With you I enjoyed pleasures of motherhood

Much as I endured the pains all mothers should

Today, you are my friend, my l’il one

Battles we fought together, we always won

In a world where all hanker for a son

My dear daughter, you are my rising sun!
