Cheers Birthday Girl!

“I am happy to report that my inner child is still ageless.” ~ James Broughton

When the candles on one’s cake become
plenteous
one is in want of a place
to hide
to cringe
to lament
but here is what I would like to say to you
on this day

I see you
lovely little girl, I see you

I see your round little face
looking into the sun
it will frown
it will sneer
it will grin

there is sunshine in your eyes
in your face
in your …
you

I feel your sensitive heart
with it’s extra little beat
it will ache
it will flutter
it will grow

I can see you are shy
scared
and unsure
yet gentle in nature
tender in heart

and that’s ok
as these things will come to make you
very rich in this life

still many miles to go
lessons to learn
heartaches,
heartbreaks
and yes
utter Joys

mistakes
missteps
misspent ..

though also
enjoyed
enriched
and Enchanted

I can see your light
and your strength
as you stumble
into wonder

and tumble
into
grace

I can see your beauty too
even when you
can not
it’s deep inside
it’s full
and it grows

as you will learn
to just be
you

to be kind
to be caring
to be open
to be
Love

I do see you
and I feel you
and
I
am
you

lovely little girl

and I
will keep you safe ♥

Cheers Birthday Girl!
