TO MY GRANDAUGHTER:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LARA:
Today my grandaughter reaches sixteen.
My, where have the years flown?.
She arrived ten weeks early I declare.
And by her arrival I was totally blown.

She was barely two pounds in weight,
So fragile but my oh my,
She had a look of determination
In her beautiful eyes.
her dad and lara.

Lara, I wish you a Happy Birthday,
May all your dreams come true.
I think about you every day.
In dreams I dream of you.

You will soon be leaving school,
And in the "Working world take your place.
I hope life will be successful for you.
Any bad memories to be erased.

There is one favour that I ask,
All I ask of you.
Please think about me for a few moments ,
As you know it's MY birthday too.
