My child, I cry for thee-a lament

(For my first child, who could not make it to this world) Your motion I feel Oblivious of the pain My son I rejoiced If only you were with me For you I mourn in regret ©Nadiya (11 Feb '15)

Namesake

My grandfather's name
Was given to me at birth
To honor the man
That my father never knew
Having died in World War Two

The Artist

A gifted artist,
Now leaves behind all his toys;
Though fragile he is,
His ambition makes him strong;
Yet, remain humble to all…

(Pour Kevin, l’artiste de Juan-les-Pins, France)

Teenager's Thoughts

Look at me today
Don’t wait until tomorrow
I am here right now
Waiting to be loved by you
Waiting to be held by you
