Happy Birthday, Beautiful.

At 3:31pm on Monday, March 29th 2004, you arrived. You were late (that’s my girl) and took your own sweet time. The first moment I held you, it was as if time stopped for all but a moment. Fifteen years later, my world is a much better place because of you.

As you celebrate with friends and family, please know I am always with you and will always be….even though we are so far apart.

Happy Birthday, beautiful.

“Happy Birthday, beautiful” – The Innocence Mission

When you wake up sun will shine
We will not go under any cloud
Let balloons go up in town
Ring out every bell
Happy birthday, beautiful
All the birds of this day
Sing a song, sing a song

Dream of trains carrying you
Through the state parks with the cherry flowers
When you wake up it will be
The beginning of the world
Happy birthday, beautiful
In the fields of this day
Hear a song, hear a song

Oh, undeserved sweetness and light
Stay by my side
We will go out in the morning now
A crown of maple leaves, a crown of flowers
Circling your sweet head
Happy birthday, beautiful
In the streets of this day
Play a song, play a song

My wish to you on your special day.
