Your eyes are brown
You never hardly ever wear a frown
You say, “Nanny, I’m almost as tall as you”
You whisper, “Nanny, I love you!”
You have a sweetness all your own
You have a way of bringing me home
You are brilliant, you are brave
You have a sensitivity that will save
You worry your brother has the same as you
Even on your birthday, you share a gift or two
You encourage him with your words so true,
“Come on, Ayden, you can do it too!”
You are his advocate in your words so tall
Already the loving way is your call
Perfect description of Nadia
Happy Birthday to Nadia!
Wonderful thoughts for her to keep always
Beautiful dedicated poem, Jane 🙂
Oh, my wonderful Nanny….and friend! You certainly do have that situation pegged! Those children have THE bestest granny in the whole world! (And I thought I was the best!!!!) Just kidding…..you, indeed, are the bestest. They love you…..and so do I. !!!!!! Hugs, Bobbi
Happy Birthday, Nadia. I’m delighted that you and your Nanny share many loving, exciting and ordinary “small” moments.
thank you, Judy! I will share what you have written with Nadia the next time she visits!
Bleated birthday wishes to Nadia. That is a lovely poem you have there, Jane.
thank you, Celestine!
