Writers Island "Magic"

Writers Island Prompt " Magic" coincided with my daughters Birthday! How delightful, she is in London on business having the time of her life!

"It's been Magic"

“Can you smell a rainbow?”

A question you asked me at four.

Purple Doc martins at eight,

Your childhood metaphor

With the Changes at ten,

Far beyond your control,

You braved the turmoil

Executing a grownup role

Twelve was a predecessor

For how you live today,

When you organized the movers

In such a professional way

At thirteen your spirit owned you

Securing all your might

Listening for obscure direction

That would honor your delight

Fourteen, responsible, reliable

Ethical, delightful, just divine

I was grateful and perplexed

At how god made you mine

Yet I knew he sent you

As a precious reward

To ease my childhood scars

So my soul could be restored

Loyal at fifteen years old

Creative with a unique style

Never following the roguish crowd

Certain people you’d beguile

Winning a leadership rank

At work and school, did pay

Labeled with distinction then

Has brought you here today

Your drive and dedication

In your younger years

Is paying off in a life of dreams

Beginning to adhere

You always chose a higher road

Believing along the way

That you could manifest your dreams

In a distinctive way

Oh there’ve been hurdles

Most would have felt defeat

But something powerful within

You were forced not to retreat

Just like magic, your life

Took a amazing turn

There you are in London

With aspirations to learn

This wonderful expedition

Your manifested dream

Earned by your endurance,

honest ethical regime

Astonishing liberated woman

At the beginning of your success

With a natural business acumen

And a huge world to impress!

You Go girl!

Happy Twenty second birthday my darling daughter

I always knew you were a cut above!

Love you with all my heart and soul!

Stay safe in London, but have a blast

I am so grateful for you!

Happy 22nd Birthday Beautiful Pepper!!
Sherrie, your perfect words are such a moving, loving tribute to such a Fun, fantastic, 'grown up' little girl! I love the way you took us on a (magical) journey through all her precious years! Simply beautiful, Simply YOU.
The 'mother/daughter relationship' you've painted is one I had always hoped to achieve in either role.
