A joyous announcement to the big, wide world,
Celebrating the birth of a bouncing baby girl,
My niece made her debut on the 26th of January
Two days shy of the Rooster and still a Monkey
Her beautiful name is Sofia but pronounced Safia
So wonderfully appropriate, like the “sa” in sapphire
Shining brightly of joy, love and hope realised
Know that you are now and forever cherished
And while in your mother’s arms you snuggle,
I suddenly realised that I’m a Monkey’s uncle!
As you get to know me, you’ll get to appreciate my off kilter humor…… I hope.
Uncle ‘Tiger’ Squirrel
