Dedicated to Annie, my Daughter
Rummaging through the basement
I came upon the trinkets of your love in delicate concealment
An intricate reminder of your constant care…
Of course, YOU always have the artistic flare…
Gently placed within a handsewn piece of pink dainty cloth
Tied with a white ribbon to keep out the moths
Two colors…green and red…colors of Christmas I did find
Led me to my heart and of your love it did remind
Outside the words were written, “Merry Christmas”
So smitten…was written your test of litmus
Of course, I knew…your love was constant
Your way of showing it without resentment
These little boxes, 1 x 2, appear so often on my shelves
Each one is so unique and placed by my little elf
In one you drew a picture of me asleep
With the caption”YOUR eyes wide OPEN”…did I weep?
Some things did pass me by
and gave way to many sighs
the care you gave me like a fox
with a tender little box
I treasure each one
for from your heart they did come
and now I see in your children so sweet
the deep love that you hold deep
your love is in their eyes so dear
you have groomed then well it is clear
their sensitivity and charm
comes straight from the heart and they would give their arm
just like YOU
you are ONE on a trillion, blue and true
you love your sister, through and through
no one doubts your love, yeah YOU
your love is beauty–through and through!
you give your heart
right from the start!
Annie, you are love
and a gentle dove!

How could I not? You were so thoughtful to post it! I had forgotten that beautiful song! I need more singing in my life and in my blog!
A mother’s love to her daughter, never more beautifully proclaimed.
