(Dedicated to Amelia Joseph)
Brownish complexion and tangled hair,
Flashy smile in endangered affair,
Joy browsed inside and enclosed,
She is her own music composed.
Determined in all endeavour around,
Her loyalty can be your surround,
She’s a happy-go-lucky constitution,
You take a vow in her revolution.
She has been there for me in each tide,
Helping me face my fears and not hide,
Her resilience is her hidden forte,
Her existence is like a perfect torte.
She can be on her toes all day long,
Portraying her steps tune to a song,
While she’s busy juggling the day to the end,
She’ll see you through ‘cause you’re her friend.
She’s loyal to your face till every brim,
Survival for her is a silly whim,
She can beat all odds against your wrong,
Beware! She’ll show just where you belong.
She’s a gem lost among the stones below,
She’s heaven’s streak for you to know,
Passionate about her values and art,
She’s a beauty with a marble heart.
She’s like a stream that runs swift and clear,
You’ll feel her aura at the premiere,
I’ve seen her dignity outgrow dismay,
She’ll lure you in integrity charm cliché!
I feel like I’ve known her all my years,
She’s a bunch full of happy cheers,
I’m proud to say she’s my best friend,
Embraced in Bitter – sweet gratified blend.
