To My Beloved Daughter

(Sorry for the delay in the publication. This should have been posted on Wednesday. Having problems with internet connection. Huhuhu!!! Belated Happy Birthday, Nak!)

Into this harsh world I brought you
With a hope of a bright future

Between me and my love so true

And the children we’ll have for sure.

You knew how hard we toiled and tried

All throughout the years of your life

But no matter how much we strived

We cannot escape lots of strife.

It sometimes feels like we have failed

In our endeavors, promises

But we hope you do understand

And work hard for your own success.

To you, my daughter, all my love

And all the best wishes I give

May God bless you and keep you safe

Success be yours through all the years!

One Wish (Poetry)

I will be happy if

      my children will succeed

            in all they wish to be.

I will be happy if

      my husband stays as sweet

            as he now seemed to be.

I will be happy if

      my sweet mom stays as strong

            as she can ever be.

I will be happy if

      our family can survive

             the worries of each day.

So if I can only

      make just one wish, I’d wish

            simply for  happiness.
