    you are made of many beautiful people
    people who had no idea they were
    playing an important role in my life

    you are the product of very intricate details
    details that would create the physical,
    enlighten the mental, inspire the spiritual
    and nurture the emotional wonder you are

    you are the light, shining in dark corners
    illuminating places that lack understanding
    you are the salt, seasoning the bland,
    adding flavor to what was too unpleasant to savor

    you are the love, precious and without blemish
    so pure and clean in the way you give yourself
    so fresh and real in how you come

    you are my everything ~ and I wake up thankful
    that you love me, happy to be loving you,
    hopeful that we shall see

    more ways we have yet to be

    you are the offspring of love and joy
    for when they laid, the foundation
    for your smile was engraved upon
    the hearts of a few
    who wouldn't know it until they one day
    "knew"

    you are the promise of spring before
    the buds appear on struggling
    wintry branches...
    stretching toward the rays of
    your light, and the warmth of
    your voice

    ah

    you are the daughter of beauty
    and more beautiful than your mother
    and more fierce than your father
    for love and joy kissed each other
    and brought forth happiness

    when you were born
