A Future Conversation Using
What is your name :
Why do you want the
poem written: I'm from South-Africa and have been working in the US for
the past 11 months as a nanny for Joseph (1 year old).
A Conversation in 2044
Joseph, as you're reading this,
I imagine the year is around 2044,
and I just wanted to tell you a few things,
as you made an impression that'll last for evermore.
You see, I'm from South Africa,
and recently I've been working in the U S A,
and for the last 11 months I've been your nanny,
but sadly, it's now time for me to go away.
And my departure brings me great sorrow,
because you've a special place in my heart,
and I wanted to tell you of my love for you,
but in truth, I just didn't know where to start.
It's because of you that I had the best year of my life,
I've been looking after you since you were just 3 weeks old,
and I can now imagine your glorious future,
and your future stories, as yet unwritten and untold.
Because of your birth I made new best friends,
I got to travel all around the United States,
I became more independent by leaving my family,
I started to steer my ship with the winds of fates.
You have such beautiful blonde hair,
and you have such magnificent baby blue eyes,
and I think you'll be a ladies man,
and this will come as no real surprise.
Because you've certainly bowled this lady over.
Gee! We've had so much fun together,
you've given me memories that'll last a lifetime,
beyond that, they're ones that'll last forever and ever.
It's gonna be very hard to say goodbye,
and I'm going to miss you with my very soul,
and if you're getting to wondering about your purpose,
well, let me tell you, you've already played a significant role.
Because you changed my life just by being born,
and don't forget, you arrived early on this planet Earth,
so you've already made your presence felt,
I know exactly what one life can be worth.
I used to calm you down by doing squats,
you'd fall asleep on my chest and stay there all night,
even today, you can't fall asleep without your stuffed cow,
instinctively, together, you know things will be alright.
You got your teeth very quickly,
and your favorite snack has always been Cheerios,
I remember your little blue shoes, your puppy dog Howard,
and I know which are your favorite clothes.
Actually, you like taking baths and swimming,
so you're happiest when you've no clothes on,
you so love giving your hugs and kisses,
you've so much love and it has always brightly shone.
You were my New Year's date in Las Vegas,
and yes, you were also my Valentine,
you were an extremely good baby,
so thanks for sharing your time with mine.
And you're lucky to have such great parents,
they've been the best host parents anyone's ever had,
and I know you'll be very happy,
because truly, you have a wonderful Mom, a caring Dad.
And I can't imagine what 2044 looks like,
but I know you'll still be there, in my mind,
because I know I was lucky to have met you,
Joseph, a treasure like you is rare and so very hard to find.
