THIS POEM IS DEDICATED TO MY SPONSORS LUCY AND JIM OF GRACE LUTHERAN CHURCH IN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

MY NAME IS NAMYALO SHARIFAH.

It is from the deepest of my heart, and whenever I read it, I feel my burden being taken away knowing that I have parents who cares about me though you are a distance from me and never got to see each other physically, but I know you are there struggling for my well being. May God protect and reward you so much.

HOW GREAT YOU ARE

How wonderful you are,

how loving you are my sponsors,

how great you are to me,

for sure you are my earthly parents.

I was in pain, before I got you,

but you really repaired my life,

i wonder where could I be now with out you.

without you nothing can go on,

my education cannot prosper without you,

Oh dear!

how great you’re to me .

the earth was dark towards me,

but you brought light for me to see,

you always wash away my tears,

and bring me back on the truck whenever I am astray,

the work you are doing is great,

I can see it, I can feel it,

You took all the pain I had,

and you filled me with love,

my parents had provided to me before.

How loving you are my sponsors,

how caring you are my dear ones,

thank you for making me your child,

thank you for sponsoring me since my primary,

in fact you are so special in my life,

and I still wonder how great you are.!!!!
