She’s a chair. Not a comfy one,
but a corrective and supportive chair.
Not the kind of chair to sit and relax,
but at times you’ll feel the benefits.
She’s a sunny day, not too hot, just
right. The sun gently kissing your skin
and the night breeze making you feel
lazy, wanting to stay out until late.
She’s chicken soup. Good for the body
and soul. Whenever you feel down,
she’ll pick you up will carry you all
the way until you’re fit again.
She’s a pair of bright yellow wellies, rubber
duck shaped. When under the rain, no
matter how dark, cold or wet, she’ll remind
you of better days,
making you smile.
I dedicate this day to my daughter, who is an inspirational younger woman and makes me very proud. I wrote this poem for her in 2014.
