Kelly Bells

My Bells


Kelly Lynn my lively child

so in a hurry to arrive

I shall never forget

that crazy Sunday drive


Enter the world

at 8 lbs, 2 oz

It's a girl

the doctor announces


The seventeenth day of April

will never be the same

You've marked that day

as your claim to fame


Ants, flowers, kittens

you adored them all

Something you didn't adore

I can't recall


Stand up comic you could be

just so darn funny

When you walk into a room

it's suddenly bright and sunny


Sparkling blue eyes

so quick to smile

I chased you so much

I must have logged miles


Teenage years

filled with drama

Yet through it all

still loved your mama


Fights with best friends

that made you cry

Patched them up

learned it's best to try


So much you've learned

about who you are

Don't ever just settle

my bright shining star


Young woman today

of twenty three years

You live with passion

showing so few fears


One birthday wish for my Bells

just won't do

But whatever you wish for

I hope will come true


Happy Birthday, Kelly Bells!

Hi dexisview,

What a beautiful baby she was and a beautiful young lady she is.

That smile also says a beautiful person from within.

So nice to see such a close bond between mum and daughter.

Have a great birthday Kelly and give your mum a big hug.

This is a great hub, and I give an up/awesome/and beautiful here.

Take care

Eiddwen.
