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!
