WELCOME TO DAY FIVE OF THE
A TO Z CHALLENGE:
I CONTINUE WITH MY THEME OF
CHOOSING A SONG TITLE
AND WRITE MY OWN POEM
E is for EBONY EYES
THE EVERLY BROTHERS:
(dedicated to my granddaughter Lara)
You were a beautiful baby,
Perfect in every way.
The first time that I held you,
I remember until this day.
You had jet black hair on your head,
With ebony eyes to match.
The first time that I saw you,
My breath it did catch.
You were born ten weeks premature,
Fragile I may say.
It appeared you were in a hurry to make your entrance,
You see it was also MY birthday.
As you grew so did your beauty,
Your ebony eyes lit up your face.
Your smile that of an angel,
All anger and tears you erased.
One day you'll have the lads queueing
To take you out on a date.
But with the watchful eye of your dad,
To ensure you don't arrive home late.
