:))) aww thanks Mona, it's funny I'm never sure how personal writes such as this will go down with people, they hold such meaning for me but might be nonsense to another, glad you liked it, blessings and much love back, Beki xxx

This is good, I like the sentiment, and the last two lines are wonderful.
I like the acrositc too, a nice touch.
Lucky Mr. Beki, getting a poem like this!
Well done.
I wish joy for you and your family, in the year to come, and for many, many after.

Respectfully, Jim
