You Are My Birthday Girl

The Love That Begins And Never Ends

You are not sixteen anymore

Thank God for that

I don't have to worry about braces and acne on your face

Goodbye twenty's and the sweet college life

The drinking and the club scene and partying on Friday and Saturday nights

Nor the early thirties working two jobs and trying to make ends meet

Your life would change when you turned thirty three

When we first met in work and soon became best of friends

I would have never thought how amazing life can be

You at thirty eight when we both got married and tied the knott

We built our home in Maine as you turned forty

The years keep on passing bye

But not one of them I will ever forget because of who I am standing beside

Just wanting to be with you

Soon the years go from single to double digits easily without effort right before our eyes

Life would change again

You joining Weight Watchers and the Planet Fitness gym

Learning to exercise and make healthier choices for our future

At age forty seven when we added a new member to our family our sweet kitten Charlettte

Now where do we stand

Never mentioning a womans age unless you want to disappear that became real clear

Life became more and more interesting as each day passed

Driving together some three hundred thousand miles side by side

We have become closer than ever

Like two candles that burn separately we each have a constant fire that becomes even more special

When you reached an age that rymes with great....

Oh I sit here and enjoy as you have another birthday one of many we have shared arm and arm

Embraced in all lifes special moments

Together we have found a way of turning back time

By making love and making all things possible

Happy Birthday honey

I love you

Thanks for all the memories that we share

Each one new and different

I have never been more proud of the love of my life

Because she is my gorgeous wife
