    She came into my world,into my life
    all gurgles and smiles
    By the time she was 2 she was sassy
    and wild.
    Sarcastic and feisty by the age of 3
    They all said this child was just like
    me.

    By age four, she had more than we
    had bargained for.
    She had to fight for her life, it happened
    over night.
    But, even after chemo when her hair was
    all gone...she strutted in her kangols...
    Alicia Key's style, her fighting spirit not
    gone.


    Wow,now she's five, still alive and starting
    to trhive. Counts to a thousand and
    knows every song on the radio, and all
    the moves and grooves. She still makes
    me smile, even when she is acting wild
    she is my baby, she is my
    GRANDCHILD!

    :heart: I LOVE YOU RAVEN!

    Thank you for reading!

    Thanks Ladies ! She is the light of my life, I love my Son very much and I never knew I could love anyone else with the same intensity...But I think I am just so blessed to have this lil soldier in my life as some of you know she is battling Leukemia. We found out last Memorial Day weekend (2001), the Doctors laugh when she and I are in treatment and doing poetry and she tells me Granma put more attitude in it! It is that spirit which is keeping her strong and healthy, (she is in remission)! I thank the Almighty for he is our Doctor! Thanks so much for reading this and putting it back on the board.

    IF YOU HAVE NOT DONATED BONE MARROW! PLEASE, PLEASE AT LEAST GET ON THE REGISTRY...THERE ARE FAR TO FEW AFRICAN AMERICAN'S ON THE REGISTRY...AND OUR BABIES ARE DYING BECAUSE OF IT!

    BLESSSINGS ON YA HOUSE!

    This is a beautiful heartfelt poem. I am glad to hear that your grand daughter is in remission. From what I read in your poem, she has got to be an extraordinary child.

    Blessings On You My Sistah,

    Joyce

    A simply beautiful piece
    Children are such blessings

    If adults could learn to live
    life with a child like spirit
    this would be a wonderful world.

    Thank you so much for sharing. :)


    Scribeaboutit! It helps.
