Abounding with delightful childhood* experiences, awesome
Blessed am I by the Lord --- Source of goodness-bliss
Cheered along care-cuddles, more than candies
Doted dear daughter of Mom and Dad…
Enclosed with encompassing parents’ love everyday
Freed was I against insecurity’s forces within family joy’s fortress
Growing up through godliness-guidance and gracious grants
Heart of mine heralded happy, healthy home…
I thank and praise God for imparted inspiring influence
Jubilant siblings sharing jackets, even jokes and jeers
Kindness prevailed warmed by good night’s hugs and kisses
Lingering still until now… laughter while learning new language.
Memories of grade school age moved me toward merriment-mirth
Novel discoveries: names, nations, needs never to neglect, so numerous
Opened my mind to opportunities’ offerings for knowledge-optimization
Prepared, propped and propelled me to what and who am I now as a person.
*1Corinthians13:11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
