On the twenty seventh day of May
In nineteen fifty nine
A baby girl came in the world
That baby girl was mine
Born with eyes so big and brown
So dainty and so sweet
Such a cutie…baby beauty
My heart fell at her feet
Although time can clear one’s mind
Some memories don’t erase
I recall each step, each fall
Each smile that crossed her face
I loved her baby powder scent
Her gurgles and her coos
Babyhood was very good
The usual spills and spews
Much smarter than the average child
She sang when she was one
We did duets to record sets
We had a lot of fun
God must have seen some good in me
His Grace is without measure
Because why would He so lovingly
Bless me with such a treasure
The years have sped so swiftly by....
How the Hands of Time rotate!
My sweet baby, now a lady,
Is a foxy fifty eight!
Happy Birthday Joni Elaine!!!
