Daisy

daisy

Drawn by the big city lights

She traded her pumps for high heels

 

On weekdays she worked in a milliner’s factory

Over weekends she treaded the steps of a queen

 

Though named after an ordinary flower

Her extraordinary dreams gave her power

 

While life has not been a bed of roses

She walks in paths of their heady perfume

 

Though age makes her grow ever smaller

Her optimism always grows even taller

 

My heart brims with eternal gratitude

For her contagiously  positive attitude

 

For one who is so small in her stature

I see her image much larger than her life

 

She takes everything in her stride

And nurtures us with so much pride

 

With eighty years now completely behind her

She still remains fiercely strong and independent

 

Today God has blessed you with another day

You deserve so much more than I can say!

 

Happy Birthday to our dear Mother!
