    Lola , Lola, my Lola!
    You are not just a great Mama,
    And a smart Lola,
    You are also a wonderful Aunt,
    And an amazing Grandaunt!

    With your sweet smiles,
    And your loving touch,
    Like a fairy godmother
    You zap away our tears,
    And you grant us good cheers!

    Like the purple orchid that clings
    To the rough edges of the forest
    You are a bright shining color
    That brings light to the shades
    You are life’s magic, and our delight!

    Stay with us forever,
    Laugh with us till morn
    Giggle with lads and lasses,
    Inspire the ladies till dawn,
    For God whispers to us,
    Lola, you are simply the best!

    One night when I was staring at the sky
    Waiting, hoping for a shooting star,
    It was so cloudy and stormy,
    No marshmallows, nor glitters to reach high
    Then there was a tiny drop
    Kind of droplet, kind of rain
    But it wasn’t rain at all,
    It was your teardrop,
    While you looked at my bruises
    And felt my pain.

    Then when I learned to walk
    And travel far and far away,
    But at the crossroads we met,
    And you helped me carry
    Lightened by my bags, so I won’t sway.

    Then I saw your eyes aglitter
    You didn’t look at me, but your sight
    Was seeing distant hills,
    And hearing absent familiar voices,
    I held your hand, and I knew
    You can forever wait, you long to see
    Your dear beloved, again to say hello.

    And so I always see your optimism
    Your face often tells me so,
    You just have to cling to hope,
    You just sing your praises,
    You just chant your prayers,
    So there you’ll have your wall to lean to.

    Happy Birthday to you Lola Dora!
    I can’t forget you…
