Poetry By Gloria                                                                   


A special bond I feel with you
I hope you believe and know this is true.
A special place you hold in my heart
I can't explain it so I won't even start.
You make me laugh when you're around
And I'd rather laugh than sit and frown.

It's just something I feel deep inside,
A connection I feel and just can't hide.
Like a daughter I feel you are to me
And one of my favorite nieces you'll always be.
I wish you luck and lots of joy,
And congratulation on having a boy

Lots of love

for my niece in law
