For The Little Girl A Mother Loves So Much

Adorable Farhah posing amidst colourful tulips. Picture courtesy of Julia.

A loving mother once said to me,
If she had a wish, that would surely be,
to have the clouds cushion her little girl to sleep,
with the rainbow dreams for her to keep.

Her wish list goes on to the very detail,
the love of a mother not to see her precious fail,
in the simplest of steps she may lead tomorrow,
let me the mother, harbour all the sorrow.

A love so true that is beyond compare,
So unique and special, only a mother and a daughter share.
Hand in hand, in cheers and in tears,
the mother cast away her worries and her fears,
knowing the little girl she once held in her palm,
will one day too, grow up and be a mum.

Till that day comes, she'll savour every moment,
of spoiling her and let lessons be learnt,
that love of a mother will keep her company,
for today, for tomorrow and for eternity.


These cupcakes were ordered by Julia, the loving mother all the way from Moscow. Read all about her stories of bringing up the little Farhah in the land of caviar, KGB, hundreds of museums, and big fur hats,

This poem is written for my daughter and also for all mothers and daughters out there. Julia, Mush, Kak Muna, this one is for you too.

Ps. Thanks Salina for introducing this song to me.

In My Daughters Eyes - Martina McBride
In my daughter's eyes I am a hero
I am strong and wise and I know no fear
But the truth is plain to see
She was sent to rescue me
I see who I wanna be
In my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes everyone is equal
Darkness turns to light and the
world is at peace
This miracle God gave to me gives me
strength when I am weak
I find reason to believe
In my daughter's eyes

And when she wraps her hand
around my finger
Oh it puts a smile in my heart
Everything becomes a little clearer
I realize what life is all about

It's hangin' on when your heart
has had enough
It's giving more when you feel like giving up
I've seen the light
It's in my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes I can see the future
A reflection of who I am and what will be
Though she'll grow and someday leave
Maybe raise a family
When I'm gone I hope you see how happy
she made me
For I'll be there
In my daughter's eyes
