a birthday

Standard

From our birthday, until we die,
Is but the winking of an eye.
William Butler Yeats

my 7th birthday

I hope you know
how much you mean to me…
Not only are you a caring daughter
you’re also a great mom
and a wonderful woman.
And even though
I’ve known you all your life,
sometimes I’m still amazed
by all the things you do.
You manage so much
and yet always find time
to be there for others.
I just couldn’t let this day go by
without saying how proud I am of you.
You’re loved even more than you know.
Happy Birthday
