Your birth was coupled with a burst of light
You came to make our lives joyous and bright
Your smile and eyes did capture swift my heart
Of father’s love you stole the greatest part
We saw perfection in your dainty hand
Each cry of yours was to us a command
You snuggled in our arms of love, secure
Oh darling, of this truth you must be sure
Without your smile, our sun would cease to shine
You are of a gift of God most precious, fine
Long life and health I wish my darling fair
Whose crowning glory is her raven hair
A lady in your right you’ve come to be
The hope and joy of life for dad and me

My darling daughter, Shereen. Today you turn 19...I try to find words to tell you what you mean to us. It is hopeless. Those deepest and truest and purest feelings cannot be defined. Let me just say how proud I am of who you have become...I'm secure knowing you've tasted life on your own and have been able to hold on to the things that matter. There is so much beauty in you that I know will come to full bloom in time. This little gift is in no way comparable to the sweet poem you wrote for me for my birthday, but it's my gift to you from far away. Yes...baby girl...you have our hearts, daddy's and mine, wrapped around your little finger. Be blessed today. Celebrate God's goodness to you. We love you love you love you! CRAZY MAMA BEAR! ?
Shereen means SWEET in FARSI. My daughter is the sweetness of my life! Today is her birthday.
