This is dedicated to my little girl on her 4th birthday. UDOCHI, great was the day you came into this earth!Your birth heralded a hope so positive that it could be touched.
I see through your innocence,
A plethora of change
As you cry that first day.
I see in your eyes,
a vision of a flowing ocean
carrying ship loads of gifts.
In your eyes of sunshine,
brigandage melt like wax,
mountains turn to pebbles.
In your eyes, I see moon beam
shinning brighter, glowing
through dark spots,
like a fresh-lit bush fire.
In your eyes, I see hope strong,
I see favour, wealth
make return journey
Your eyes, harbinger of greatness
wiping away years of sorrows,
I see change in your eyes,
my little girl...

|This is a beautiful gift that Udochi will treasure and pass to her children. Yes, children are our hope and they give us wonder again by letting us see through their eyes. Emeka, this reminds me of my granddaughter...|

Beautiful, Blissful, Benevolent and Blessing.
"In Your Eyes" emotions show what a heart grow, and life follows its course through UDOCHI, the mark of the poet´s days.
May You house be healthy, properous and happy.

A most beautiful gift for Udochi. All little girls should be as fortunate as she is, with a loving daddy.
Give her (((HUGS))) and tell her happy birthday from Karla and Karen in America. :)
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :)
