Another Life’s Year

My sweet dear,
another life's year
has come to an end.

And like all, it did begin
by celebrating your birth
on this beautiful earth
with those you love
and giving thanks to God above.

And like all, you have given so much
with your loving and caring touch,
never asking for what you deserve,
just doing for others with your boundless verve.

So, on this special day
I want to say
how much I love you,
appreciate all that you do,
and am blessed
to share our family nest
that would not be without you.
