I met her one night over drinks,
I felt the wall right away.
Beautiful young woman she was,
a demeanor of strength she conveyed.
It took some time to get to know her
all those layers of time started to melt.
Her warm heart began to show
I could see why love was what my son felt.
She is her own woman,
She is loving and caring
She is a Mom above all
and a wife that is very rare
I am proud to say she is my friend
the daughter I never had.
In my eyes she can do no wrong
my life is better because of her,
she makes my heart glad.
Glad to know her and love her,
glad to enjoy her company.
Glad that her world includes me,
glad that this wonderful creature embraces me.
She is strong, she is quick,
her mind is always busy.
She is understanding and sweet,
always time for others
a smile for those that she meets.
She is tough and yet fragile,
she takes no bull from no one.
I would like to be more like her,
say what I feel and stand up to some.
She is young, yet she's wise,
her perspective is intriguing.
She can make you see her point
and leave your senses reeling.
Fifteen years now she has
been in my world,
and it just keeps getting better.
Her beauty has only deepened,
I have seen her angel wings unfurled.
I am grateful and so humbled
that my life has been so blessed
with this daughter, not of my body,
and yet I know in my heart she is the best.
I love you Meja!!
Thank you for being you and for your never ending
friendship. You are a blessing to me, you will never
know the depth of love I feel for you and the awe I feel for the
wonderful person you are!!
