Happy 21st Birthday to My Daughter ♥♥♥

You were a bundle of baby powder
so sweet smelling and cuddly
with rosy lips curved
into the perfect infant smile

that was only the beginning
of our hearts melting

Your beauty became more apparent,
not only on the outside, but on the inside, too
Your heart grew big enough
to share love around the world
You were an adorable little girl
Then within days,
You became a gorgeous young lady
ready to take on the world

You are the moon at it’s fullest,
pouring light over us
on the darkest night
and a country melody
just right for line dancing

You are the brightest sunflower
adding color to the garden of life
or the white stallion
prepared for any challenge that greets you

You are a dolphin,
gliding gently through life with grace
or shimmering sterling silver
Your soul never to tarnish

Our daughter, our creation from love
Now Twenty-one
“You’ve got the world by the tail,
Your Grandpa used to say
So move forward with passion
and make your own way

Our love for you is larger than life,
Mom and Dad
