Happy Birthday

The Eighteenth Birthday

The bubble of my joy
Cute, cuddle and coy
Used to charm with her chatter
Resonate house with a clatter
Kept me busy with her play
Danced to her tune all day
Asking improbable questions
Painting her world of dreams
Playing with dolls, my doll
Couldn’t catch, when grew tall
And how days slipped to this day
And my doll turned eighteen today

A reflection of my heart,
An ardent lover of art,
A shimmering ray of mirth
A sweet morsel of my heart
Sparkled my life bright
When clutched me tight
 With hold of her soft hands
I sailed into heaven
Her million silky giggles
 Bestowed bliss of motherhood
My own gracious reflection
Grew into an innocent maiden

I rejoice this day
Her eighteenth birthday
I love you my darling
Pour out fondest blessing
May she embrace
All the bounties of life
The riches of this world
May sparkle her life
Agony shan't touch upon her
Grace of God may ever be on her
May she live a thousand year
And I will live on, in her.
