YOU ARE LIKE A DAUGHTER TO US (Poem #215)

I wrote a poem for my daughter and new son-in-law and read it at their wedding reception in 1997. People have been encouraging me ever since. I try to write up-beat and happy poetry. My poetry has been in many anthologies, newspapers, church bulletins,etc. I won a small contest once. I self-publish…






THIS IS A GREETING CARD VERSE

 Happy Birthday Alice, you're one of a kind.
 A daughter-in-law like you is very hard to find.

Birthdays come and go and you get nicer each year.
 You're just like a daughter to us, so dear.

 When we come visit, you make us feel so at home,
 Sharing your time with us so we don't feel alone.

 We hope this year will be filled with great joys
 As soon as the party settles down from its noise.

 And if there's no party, we hope the day will be
 The beginning of the happiest year you'd ever want to see.
