An instance flashed back before me,
February of 1994,
I learned that I was pregnant
for the second time
after a miscarriage.
I recalled a time when I started
to write down names like:
Canisha Yvon, Dana Maureen, Leira Denisse
but nothing would seem better than this particular name.
It never crossed my mind
to search the meaning of your name
ever since you were born
until I found myself writing this.
To my surprise,
the definition describes who and what you really are...
You have that profound sense of friendship.
You’re a shoulder to cry on...
a true friend
who is always there to help and offer advice.
You value family.
You may not demonstrate love
as affectionate as you can possibly do
but you have that undeniable warmth
of concern towards other people.
is created only for you.
I believe that every human being
is destined to have a name
that’s uniquely owned.
Your beauty is now in full-bloom
No better name is fitted for you
than this one.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!!
