Happiest of birthdays to my beloved Mom.
Her flaxen hair is now platinum,
her hazel blue eyes sometimes are grey.
She loves butterflies and flowers
and would play in her garden all day.
Her smile hides her sadness,
for she misses her true love.
He left this earth years ago,
but watches her from above.
She raised her daughter
to be strong but soft.
She’s so proud of her girl,
more often than not.
Another trip around the sun she did make.
One more candle now sits on her cake.
