At first it was only a seed. I said to myself,
maybe this is something that I need. I took
it home with me and with soil that I had - I
planted there my seed.
I nursed it with love and water that fell from
heaven. Everyday I would check on it, until
one day, I saw a sprout. I gave thanks to God,
He was also doing His part.
I gave it tender loving care, made sure it got
water and sunshine too. It made me very happy
as I was watching my flower grow. It was June
when she came to life.
One day she was all grown and I couldn't love
her more. It was my daughter, that I would love
forever more. She was born the 23 of June.
Those are the memories that I can never forget...
