You made the how.
You kept asking, "Why and why not."
You did not give up.
You were a brave girl stepping out into unknown territory.
You found a city where the weather matched your clothes.
Here you are putting down your roots.
Here you are carving your niche.
It is very good.
I cannot be with you today
to celebrate your day of all days.
My vitality is too low to travel the miles.
I celebrate in my heart the day you were born.
I fly you away home.
I see you in the candle light and the wishes on first stars.
You are never far from me.
Only a bird song away.
I am so very proud of you.
You are you!
You are my beloved daughter
in whom I am well pleased.
