Kelly Bells

Updated on April 16, 2011

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.
