117th Birthday Of Elizabeth Gathony Koinange Of Kenya
How to wish you a happy 117th birthday,
by Akhtar Jawad
Just by writing happy birthday to you,
It's not enough.
It's good but you deserve something better.
Should I write I love you?
but you deserve the best.
I don't know how to address you
that may enter your heart
and you are forced to say
"I love you, too."
Let me consult my mother earth.
My mother says she looks like my mother,
and you may address
Sweet Mother of Earth!
we need beautiful mothers like you.
