Missed By A Mile.

#day4 #NaPoWriMo21 #meaningofmyname


One hot April in 1979,

A cute couple married,

Soon they were expecting a child.


The young lady, she wished for a baby girl

To be born on Christmas day,

More than anything in the world.


The imp missed Christmas day by a mile,

She was born 28 days after Christmas,

To be precise.


Baby’s Grandma said, ‘Hush don’t be silly’.

‘If you marry end April, the baby arrives

End January, you ninny’.


‘A baby on Christmas day!

Good god! The neighbourhood busy bodies

Would have their tongues wagging away.’


And yet, Natasha, meaning ‘born on Christmas Day’,

The tot was named! The couples’ next baby too

Missed Christmas but… nailed Valentine’s Day.😊
