From A Father To His Daughter Georgia....


One twelfth of September you came to us
Bright eyes sparkling and with very little fuss

We were waiting, excited by the thought of what was to come
This was all new to us as you lay in moms tum
We welcomed you into the world with love

You had us in fits at some of the things you did
Running and jumping, you'd not do as we bid
A mischievious smile and giggles to boot
Off you would run and not give a hoot

Through the years you have proven to be
A wonder to behold for all to see
So bright and bubbly and full of life
Although not without some moments of strife!

We always knew how great you'd be
What a beauty you've grown into, all can see
You make us proud and now we know
As daughter and sister you positively glow

You are loved and cherished by all you know
I love you Georgia....

Just to let you know..

Dad..

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
