Born with a smile etched on her lips
That not even a whimpered cry could erase
With chinky eyes squinting to the blinding light
The fragile bundle of love seemed to say:
“Here I am, watch me become great someday”.
Though smothered with love as she grew
And, pampered, yet, she chose to be on her own
She proved that girls could be resolute and strong
Her dexterity and quick-mindedness showed it all –
That her steps were heading toward the success’ call.
Her lilting voice and warm captivating smile
Makes her glow even in a throng of harried crowd
Standing out head and shoulders above the rest
Her stride makes a mark…just so graciously tall –
And a dashing beauty as could be seen by all!
