I Love you 5

She ran to her with hands outstretched
And grabbed her mother’s hand.
Looking up she shyly said
I love you 5 Mama.
Is that all? the mother asked
The child, she shook her head.
But that’s my whole hand she said
And that was all her world.

Then she learnt to count to 100
And forgot she ever had a mother

Each time the mother saw her hand
She couldn’t help but see
A little girl who held her once
I love you 5 she said


A granny who always sees the humour in life and tries to do things differently. When others make cupcakes, this granny makes banana fritters. When she’s not busy chasing her grandchildren who love making her run around, she indulges in her passions of reading, writing, meeting friends and watching movies. And somewhere between all this she enjoys travelling and cooking!
