Poetic Tribute by Eight-Year-Old to her Mother


This unsolicited and unprompted tribute was offered by just-turned-eight Jeneva last night. For the benefit of those challenged in any way by the inventive spelling, here is an edited version:

A Poem for my Mommy

Your …

eyes twinkle from the stars and the sea waves and
it sounds like a lullaby you sing to me
you look so! pretty you
make me smile on rainy days
and I love you Mom
you are caring to us
and we appreciate it so, so, so much

Love, Neeve  🙂

All together, now, one-two-three:

“Awwwww, kewt!”  (snf, snf)
