Baptized in church in Minneapolis
it was a special day I would not miss.
I have a photo of you and me
we both were smiling happily.
Then when your first Christmas came
I got to see you once again.
First Christmas for baby Angel my niece
It was happy and filled with peace.
Then of course I would only see you sparingly.
I have pictures of your volleyball game–
you are a teenager now you don’t look the same.
I also have photos of you and with Allisa at your grandma’s,
You are very happy just because.
Because you are a sweet and caring girl
You are precious to the world.
I’m glad I saw you graduate
It was a glorious and memorable day.
Happy Birthday I also wanted to say
I hope you received your card I sent your way.
