Once upon a time, not very long ago
Maybe about forty years ago
In a nice evening a beautiful lady had a walk
Through the land her husband owned near the park.
It was lovely with so many trees and flowers
She smelt them and wondered into the woods for hours
Suddenly she saw a strange beautiful rock
She took it in wondering as it's bigger than an egg of a hawk.
So she turned back to her home with the treasure she found
She kept it warm and cozy with a pillow on the ground
Her husband has gone abroad for business
In hope to come back to celebrate Christmas.
Next day she took the egg in her hand to see
It started cracking and finally it broke free
Surprised she didn't know what to say
It looked at her with innocent eyes as to say Hay!
Soon she recognized what it was, definitely not a bird
Yet she decided to keep it in as a secret
Suddenly with her touch it turned to a baby
She was so shocked, she was amused by his anomaly.
She named him Ray to remember the tiny ray of sunshine
As she raised him as her own sunshine
Even after her husband left her as he found out her adoption
She took Ray to Londinium since she had no option.
Ray grew into a handsome clever friendly young man
His Mama was so proud of him as she trained him to be a gentleman
He loved his Mama more than anyone in the world
Though he knew he is so different from the rest of the world.
His beautiful Mama got sick and soon she left the world
He was so sad though he was in love with a girl
She too said she doesn't love him and it crushed his heart
Life is not worth living so he finally thought.
In his sadness he had flashbacks of who he was
How he transformed into the human form had a cause
To bring sunshine to the hearts that are broken
So in his sadness started singing out loud in emotion.
Now he's going to step into his naughty forties
He has touched so many with his wise stories
But he had given up on wedding bells as he enjoys freedom
He's the 'Singing Dinosaur' whom I love in my Bubble kingdom :)
