Dedicated spoken poem: For Ana and Maria

I have written this little poem for my friend George’s twin nieces because he told me they love my voice so much. That just completely made my day!  🙂

Ana and Maria, this is for you. ❤

Liefs en knuffels,

 Ana and Maria

Ana & Maria

Angelic laughter

Cute little smiles

Love, so easily given

Traveling all these miles

 –

Joyful voices

Pink rosy cheeks

Kindness, spreading around

To anyone who seeks

 –

Lightly giggles

Echoes of happiness

Curiosity, for everything

Such adorable sweetness

 –

Colorful stories

Painting the world anew

Kept safe forever

Fairies are watching over you

– 

Butterfly kisses

By the falling of the night

Sweet dreams, little angels

Until the morning light

Just Patty
