It's my daughter's 21st birthday today.  So I wrote her a poem and drew her this drawing.


Today you get your keys
Can open many doors, 
Watch out for cheeky monkeys, 
That hide behind the doors.
Sometimes you get donkeys, 
You better slam the doors! 
If it is a wolly wookie, 
Dash quickly out the doors! 
If it turns out Chucky, 
You better lock the doors! 

I hope that you are lucky, 
Waiting behind the doors, 
If that is your destiny, 
He will find you and be yours. 

Happy Birthday Dear!

About Philo Yan

For the past 28 years, career and family took precedence. After deciding to leave my career and with my 2 young adults and 1 teenager making their own way in their life, I now have time to do what I love and that is creating art. I have no formal training and consider myself an amateur. I have great respect for the extremely talented artists especially those who specialize in 3D and realism using all various tools of art.  They are so amazing and if I can achieve even 1% of what they do, it will be a milestone in my baby steps towards art. My daughter is artistic and she is in her final year pursuing a degree in Art and Games design.  I have been doing art for 2 years now and have moved on to poetry writing.  I write poems to accompany my drawings.   I do appreciate if you would drop me a line to ask for permission.  If you like the poems, you are welcome to use it with credits as they are original poems. Or if you like me to write one for your drawings, I will be happy to oblige.
