Happy Birthday ''asiabree''...you're 25 Years Old.
You know, its funny...
When you were little I would think about you getting older
I'd tell myself- ''no way''-
I'll always be able to give her a kiss good night and hold her
I would think how glad , that when it would be-'TODAY-YOUR 25 BIRTHDAY'
it would be so many years away.
But, I was wrong- those days of dressing you up and french braiding your hair came and went so fast
I counted on those days to keep you safe in my arms to forever last
Watching you grow has been a reward all of its own
Transforming into the most beautiful and amazing woman I have come to know
When I hear other people talk about there children growing up and moving out
I ask -am I the only mom- who finds strength in being close- and the comfort you bring all my doubts
The things I fear- the things that enrage or bring out such emotion
What calms my worries-is the love of you your strength and devotion...
Inspires me and makes it easier to get through it all
And when I think of all the things Ive wanted to give you- all the times I've hit a wall-
Thinking how you deserved so much more which is why I could tear down the world
when I see times you're unhappy-upset or something ''hurts my little girl''
If I could of given you everything it still wouldn't be enough
But I so tried to give you more than what you had
Though nothing could love you more or as much
Nothing could make me feel what I cannot describe-
When I look at you and remember- that you were once this tiny little creature inside
The amazement captivates me- and at the same time saddens me deeply
If I had only known the days of you in a blue and white ***** night gown-
and the sound of your voice when you were sleepy
Would turn into phone call texts and emails instead
Would turn from ''MAC & ME'' ''E.T.'' AND ''LITTLE OLD LADY'' before bed
And days walking to the ''little park'' and watching you play-
Would - one day- be watching you with your son-visiting-
Then get in your car and drive away.
If I had only seen that time with a little girl who means so much to me
Was only going to last a bl
I would of bottled up every second of you
so I could have my little girl again when ever I wanted to..
And nothing could give me more joy then the joy you will find in the special moments
the laughter and the tears
to complete your life in all the ways that you have mine-
all of these 25 years!
Iam so proud a honored to have you as my daughter and I , your mother-
I love you 'ASIA BREE'
LOVE 'MoM'....................XO 2010
