Birthday poem for my 8 year old:

Like a flower always in bloom

Your joy and love warms a room

And brings zest and color to life

Always helping people in strife

My flower smiles shyly when praised

But leaves people’s spirits raised

And covers smaller ones from rain

Always soothes those in pain

Your colors so bright in a grey world

Such a beautiful loving young girl

I cherish you my bright flower

I’ll be here to help you grow forever
