(My Mother In-Law)
When I was a little girl, I imagined so many things…
Constantly wondering what my life might bring~
Who I would love and share my life with
Who I would marry, and if I’d have kids~
Well, life happened differently far from my dreams,
Happy endings are not what they all seem.
I was hurt by my life by the time I met you,
and it was hard for anyone to really get through.
But you were so patient and forgave many times,
and finally we bonded through the years like fine wine~
Today I have regrets over the time that I wasted,
like a lifetime of chocolate all left untasted!
Your wisdom and experience is hard to compare,
and the way that you love, is so very rare~
You have lived your life like a fine work of art,
but even more, is the beauty I’ve found in your heart~
You’ve been an amazing grandma through all the years
thinking of your love, just brings me to tears~
And today, as I stop to realize… everything in the end….
The mother in law I imagined once, is now one of my best friends!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAR!
I love you!
