im a year older


7:08am
3rd April
Several years ago

My mother laboured
And with the aid of a pair of forceps
I was brought to life
Black not dark
With cherub cheeks
A charming smile
A sweet quiet baby
Who has grown up to be me
Through illhealth
Through exams
Wet diapers
Baby feeding times
Prayer
I am whom I am
Because of my mother
Today on my birthday
I celebrate her
She has been a rock
A pillar and a post
My father
Warm arms
A healthy smile
A welcoming ear
A kind heart
He is one in a million
Never judgemental
Always caring
Passing the truth across
My brothers
Who let me be me
Let me spoil myself
While I spoilt them too
Who have always been there
Cried through my dark moments
Celebrated and fooled around together
Today I say I love my family
They are the best anyone could ever wish for
And I say happy birthday to me
A huge Well done to them
