I’m strong, but she’s stronger
I’m frugal, but she has me beat there too
Twenty five years ago today
After a difficult labor of
Hemorrhaging, internal stitching
Pain beyond imagining
She was born
Each second after that
Was bliss, as I held her
The most contented mother
On the planet.
Not one day of regret
She filled a lifetime void,
taught me true love
then grew up to be my best friend
She radiates loyalty, hope, and
Generously she thinks of others
Always responsible and sensible
She follows her heart and intuition
And she cooks now too,
as though it is her true calling.
As she walks through the footsteps of life
Dragging bags of her parents dysfunction
She grasps on to her sensible nature,
gentle husband, sense of gratitude
And copes with panache
Each day I have learned something new
From that precious treasure
I call my daughter!
Happy Birthday Darling
You are a one of a kind
I love you beyond words
I hope you know that!
