Sweet and loving is the heart,

That is pumping blood in your chest.

I look up to you in everything I do;

Studying together and reading together.

My secret playmate, not faraway.

Yet you have thought me so much,

Facing life with ease, although it is tough.

I shall cherish in my heart every wispy breath, and word of yours.

Your positive psychology words for inspiration every time I’m feeling upset.

This is why you’ve been the dearest from the start,

Daddy, you are Van Gogh‘s work of art.

Happy birthday to you!

Afra, thank you so much for your incredible support on every haiku of mine. You keep me going up the ladder higher and higher. I couldn’t have been able to write this piece without your immense support. Thank you so much……..

Just as a member you have helped me to grow and learn. I can’t express this feeling in words. You have been the real life of my poetry……
Thank you once again for being a supportive, dear friend on Teen ink. Writing all comes from you…
