You’ll Always Be A Child To Us

A week early but after anxious hours
Amid torrential bouts of El Niño showers

Came to us our sweet labor of love
A girl child from the powers above

A wish fulfilled, a dream come true
Light sparkled into our lives anew

Clingy at first but too soon she grew
Into a young lassie of vivacious virtue

Friendly by nature, a giver by heart
A shed tear by her can tear us apart

Each passing day, we learn from her
To meet our lives with verve ‘n vigor

To love, to give, and just how to be
Happy, and graceful and full of glee

An adult today, and ready to fly
We wonder how this time went by!

It’s not the end to our worries and fuss
Because Aashna, you’ll always be a child to us!
