My daughter is in Australia with her mum for the whole of April, so I thought I’d write her a poem in a card she could take with her and open on Easter day as I’m not going to see her for over a month!
I’m not a very good poet, but that doesn’t really matter. For me it’s that I’ve made the effort and, like the pictures I draw for her, it’s another way of communicating with her and showing her how important she is and what she means to me.
I hope you’re having a whole heap of fun,
Down in Australia, out in the sun.
I’m back in England missing my daughter,
And I hope youre being safe, out there in the water.
Speaking of which, what’s it like in the sea?
can you bring something nice from the beach back to me?
With all of my heart: I love you O,
I just thought I’d say, as I miss you so.
So come home soon and tell me all about it,
(your holiday that is, not the Easter Rabbit.)
Happy Easter Olivia!
Does anyone else write letters or cards to their kids?
What do you say?
How awesome does it make them and you feel!?
