Smile My Son

Written by: Refilwe Tlhabanyane

Dear Light of mine, Joy of my 
heart. 

Always be happy  my sunshine,
Dance like the bright twinkling 
stars above.

Jump up and down with 
laughter and always reach for 
the bright blue sky.

There are no limits in life my 
child.

Keep your heart in the right 
place, Shun your face from evil.

Do not hang on to anything or 
anyone who makes you cry.

Remember that my loving 
embrace will always keep you 
warm. My heart is your home 
forever.

Smile my son, mom loves you 
always.



     Dedicated to my 6yr old son
     Odirile-Lesedi Joy   
     Tlhabanyane-Sebitlo.
