For Your Birthday


First born of mine
You came into this world
With wide eyed wonder
At natures bounty
A smile, burst of sunflower
Bright, open and yellow warm
Through passing years
I’ve watch you grow
We’ve navigated through
Seas of father child relationship
Sometimes stormy, sometimes calm
Yet always in loves embrace
We’ve taught each other well
Proud I am of all the
Adult roles you now play
Wife, mother, friend, confidant and worker
Your wide eyed wonder and sunburst smile
Passed down the generations
Your care and loyalty a
Tribute to your soul
But most of all
I’m proud of you
First born child of mine
And I with wide eyed wonder
Incredulous at all you are
I thank the God’s for their grace
In gifting you to me
Happy birthday my daughter
