A Sonnet for Shereen

Your birth was coupled with a burst of light
You came to make my life joyous and bright
Your smile and eyes did capture swift my heart
Of mother's life you are the sweetest part
 
I saw perfection in your dainty hand
With just a smile my heart you did command
You snuggled in my arms of love, secure
Oh darling, of this truth you must be sure
 
Without you here, my sun would cease to shine
You are of a gift of God most precious, fine
Long life and health I wish my darling fair
Whose crowning glory is her raven hair
 
A lady in your right you’ve come to be
But in your eyes my little girl I see

    Hello, my sweet Sunshine! I hope you are well! :) I'm glad you liked this piece about Shereen. Shereen, by the way, means "sweet" in Farsi. She is the sweetness of my life. Thanks for stopping by. Hugs

    Oh!!!! Regina!!! Thanks ever so much for my top win! :) You are so kind to favor my poem that way. Shereen is truly the light of my life and the joy of my heart. My husband and I both dote on her. She writes as well! If you feel like it, read this poem she wrote for me on my birthday! It's called the Month of May. I'm so so proud of her! http://www.poetrysoup.com/poems_poets/poem_detail.aspx?ID=478924 Once again...thanks ever so much! Hugs!

    Please forgive me for taking time to answer your lovely posts. I have a house guest and today was really tough....four classes AND I had to give the chapel talk....I'm also very low on energy lately...Literally dragging myself around. So SO tired today I had to wait in the office for a bit before I could get to my car. Need to follow up on that....I know what ails me! :( I'll get to you all soon, I promise! HUGS to one an ALL!
