I know that God must love me because, he's given me my daughter Tara. Happy birthday darlin' girl.
She has a light in her soul
She opens up her heart
She shows me where the sun is
She can always ease my pain.
I know that God must love me
He showed me with His grace
I knew just how completely
When I saw my angel's face.
And in that very important moment
When she came into my world
I knew that she was so much more
Than just my baby girl.
She's my closest friend
The reason I do my best.
She has a smile that an angel might envy.
My internet takes forever to load a photo.
I like to keep my kids suspended in time.
I wish I could keep them strapped into their seat belts in my car forever.
I never wanted them to grow up and leave me.
Forgive me, I'm a stinkin' mess.
I will carry on now.
This is our big, beautiful family whom I live for. I'm off writing in Ireland on a painting and writing retreat, missing them with all my heart and soul. Tara, this is for you - for your belated birthday because, you are the poem I dreamed of writing. The masterpiece I longed to paint. You are the shining star I reached for in my ever hopeful quest for life fulfilled.
You are my child and now with all things I am blessed.
Happy birthday sunshine.
Love you more than all the shamrocks in Ireland,
