HAPPIEST BIRTHDAY
All I know is she's forgotten the names momma gave She gives me that look when I call her, Hannah She insists she wants sweet names, Some honey I have to daily add to her, yes Honey

HAPPIEST ARRIVAL MI ESPOSA


When love was born, today in some past
Waited, possibly anxiously unaware
When she was given a name, Wanjiku
Should I call her, by her name
When I call by her names she answers not

When love was a teen, I was also a far-teen
Somewhere in the villages of western count
Love didn't even exist, except for the word
Love, schooled I never saw her nor hear her
Her flower passed by, by many a bees

Love didn't exist yet

Love showed up as a young beauty queen
She was a grown up, just not tiny Nov-Babe
She was beautifully uninterested
Maybe she hadn't find anyone interesting
When love, appeared she confirmed an ache
The ache that the ushered a love-thing

Love made eleven eleven a holy-day,
I was close enough to see her born every year
I was nearer to the birth pangs and endless joys
I was close enough to give her other names,
All I know is she's forgotten the names momma gave
She gives me that look when I call her, Hannah
She insists she wants sweet names,
Some honey I have to daily add to her, yes Honey

Love now exists
I see her around fly every day
I feel her close everywhere
I call anytime anyhow
I go back to her, every evening

Am forever grateful Love was born

With lots of love
Your loving Husband
❤️
