Happy Birthday My Daughter

You, the one that I honestly love
Have known my innermost emotions
You grew to know my world before you knew your world
You developed a sense of caring for me before I knew you
You understood me deeply before I gave you a chance
You and I really know one another
Truthfully, we know how to perceive each other
I love each moment I’m with you
You cast a light into my life when my world seems dark
When I’m numb with melancholy speculation
You compel me to smile
When my heart has been bruised
You caress me with contentment
You place hope in my dreams and expectations of you
There is no one in the world like you
Rest assured, there is no other devotion
Like my love for you… my daughter
