My cousin and I are two weeks apart and we are coming upon a milestone birthday. I wrote this poem in honor of us!
I have been on this earth for a while now
She said to the One who Created her.
I have laughed, loved, cried and lost.
I have been both a daughter and a Mother.
I have lifted my arms up to the sky
And accepted what the earth had to give.
What is left for me to experience;
Is there more of this life for me to live?
The Creator smiled down with love
Upon His creation so beautiful and dear
And with His gentle voice He declared
My Child, There is no reason for you to fear
For you have only just begun to bloom.
