A good friend of mine once said to me,
if you had the time, I'd like you to make merry,
a wonderful person whom all of us adore,
a mother, a friend, a mentor and more.
I replied in delight much to my fancy,
of baking something special, something really pretty,
I gave it my all, sourcing all things nice,
For the lovely lady, cupcakes to surprise.
I placed the sweeties in boxes of pink,
with feathers, ribbons and flowers in between,
Excited we all were hastened our steps a bit,
Saw the smile on her face as she chanced upon her gift.
I have accomplished what you have sent me to do,
Made the cakes in cups and delivered them too.
Hope she liked them and felt the love you blew,
in all the fillings, the toppings and the cakes I brewed.
I'm off to somewhere for a day or two,
over the rainbow to see the clouds float through.
When I return, I hope to be up and about,
terrible coughs and asthma insyaAllah, I'd be without.
Lotsa of Love
