To April On Her 28th Birthday
I remember the day when you were born I was s o scared, I was just
a child myself. I was so unsure of how I would cope with the
changes that were happening in my life, but when they brought you
to me and I looked into those beautiful eyes of yours I knew that
with God's help I would be alright. He had sent me this
wonderful little life to love and care for. I knew that
moment that you had filled a place in my heart that on one else
could ever fill.
I was going to be someone's mother for the rest of my life.
I couldn't believe that you were really mine. I was so proud
that day that I was your mother and you were my beautiful daughter
and I am even prouder today for the wonderful person you have
become, You're a mother now and someone's wife. But in my
eyes and in my heart you will always be that beautiful baby girl
they laid in my arms 28 years ago, and I just want you to know
that I love you honey, more than I can say and it's a love that
will last forever and a day.
for my oldest daughter April Christine Roth.
My beautiful daughter and also my friend.
